Split-plot experiment of barley with fungicide treatments

Description

Split-plot experiment of barley with fungicide treatments

Format

A data frame with 560 observations on the following 6 variables.

yield

yield, tonnes/ha

block

block, 4 levels

gen

genotype, 70 levels

fung

fungicide, 2 levels

row

row

bed

bed (column)

Details

Grown in 1995-1996 at the Scottish Crop Research Institute. Split-plot design with 4 blocks, 2 whole-plot fungicide treatments, and 70 barley varieties or variety mixes. Total area was 10 rows (north/south) by 56 beds (east/west).
