Split-plot Experiment Examining Effect of Moisture and Fertilizer on Dry Matter in Peat Pots

Description

This dataset comes from a split-plot experiment examining Trays of 4 peat pots each. Moisture was varied between Trays (i.e. it was the whole-plot treatment) and Fertilizer was varied within Trays (i.e. it was the sub-plot treatment). The outcome measure was DryMatter.

Format

A data frame with 48 observations on the following 4 variables.

Tray

a factor with levels "t1" .. "t12"

Moisture

a factor with levels "m1" .. "m4"

Fertilizer

a factor with levels "f1" .. "f4"

DryMatter

a numeric vector
