bryan.corn.uniformity {agridat}R Documentation

Uniformity trial of corn at 3 locations in Iowa.

Description

Uniformity trial of corn at 3 locations in Iowa.

Usage

data("bryan.corn.uniformity")

Format

A data frame with 1728 observations on the following 4 variables.

expt

experiment (variety/orientation)

row

row

col

column

yield

yield, pounds per plot

Details

Three varieties of corn were planted. Each experiment was 48 rows, each row 48 hills long, .65 acres. (A "hill" is a single hole with possibly multiple seeds). Spacing between the hills would be sqrt(43560 sq ft * .64) / 48 = 3.5 feet.

In the experiment code, K=Krug, I=Iodent, M=McCulloch (varieties of corn), 23=1923, 25=1925, E=East/West, N=North/South.

Each experiment was aggregated into experimental units by combining 8 hills, both in East/West direction and also in North/South direction. Thus, each field is represented twice in the data.
