Growth of soybean varieties in 3 years

Description

Growth of soybean varieties in 3 years

Usage

data("davidian.soybean")

Format

A data frame with 412 observations on the following 5 variables.

plot

plot code

variety

variety, F or P

year

1988-1990

day

days after planting

weight

weight of soybean leaves

Details

This experiment compared the growth patterns of two genotypes of soybean varieties: F=Forrest (commercial variety) and P=Plant Introduction number 416937 (experimental variety).

Data were collected in 3 consecutive years.

At the start of each growing season, 16 plots were seeded (8 for each variety). Data were collected approximately weekly. At each timepoint, six plants were randomly selected from each plot. The leaves from these 6 plants were weighed, and average leaf weight per plant was reported. (We assume that the data collection is destructive and different plants are sampled at each date).

Note: this data is the same as the "nlme::Soybean" data.

  library(agridat)
  data(davidian.soybean)
  dat <- davidian.soybean
  dat$year <- factor(dat$year)

  # The only way to keep your sanity with nlme is to use groupedData objects
  # Well, maybe not.  When I use "devtools::run_examples",
  # the "groupedData" function creates a dataframe with/within(?) an
  # environment, and then "nlsList" cannot find datg, even though
  # ls() shows datg is visible and head(datg) is fine.
  # Also works fine in interactive mode. It is driving me insane.
  # reid.grasses has the same problem
  # Use if(0){} to block this code from running.
