Slate Hall Farm 1978

Description

Yields for a trial at Slate Hall Farm in 1978.

Format

A data frame with 150 observations on the following 5 variables.

row

row

col

column

yield

yield (grams/plot)

gen

genotype factor, 25 levels

rep

rep factor, 6 levels

Details

The trial was of spring wheat at Slate Hall Farm in 1978. The experiment was a balanced lattice with 25 varieties in 6 replicates. The 'rep' labels are arbitrary (no rep labels appeared in the source data). Each row within a rep is an incomplete block. The plot size was 1.5 meters by 4 meters.

Field width: 10 plots x 4 m = 40 m

Field length: 15 plots x 1.5 meters = 22.5 m
