Details

Tea plucking in Ceylon extended from 20 Apr 1928 to 10 Dec 1929. There were 42 pluckings.

The field was divided into 144 plots of 1/72 acre = 605 sq ft. Each plot contained 6 rows of bushes, approximately 42 bushes. (Each row was thus about 7 bushes).

Plots in row 12 were at high on a hillside, plots in row 1 were low on the hill.

Note: We will assume the plots are roughly square: 6 rows of 7 bushes.

Field width: 12 plots * 24.6 feet = 295 feet

Field length: 12 plots * 24.6 feet = 295 feet

## Not run:

  # mean(dat$yield) # 972.574 match page 5554
  
  m1 <- aov(yield ~ factor(entry) + factor(row) + factor(col), data=dat)
