## RCB experiment of rice, 6 densities

### Description

RCB experiment of rice, 6 densities

### Format

A data frame with 24 observations on the following 3 variables.

`rate`

kg seeds per hectare

`rep`

rep (block), four levels

`yield`

yield, kg/ha

### Details

Rice yield at six different densities in an RCB design.

### Examples

```## Not run:

library(agridat)
data(gomez.seedrate)
dat <- gomez.seedrate

libs(lattice)
xyplot(yield ~ rate, data=dat, group=rep, type='b',
main="gomez.seedrate", auto.key=list(columns=4))

# Quadratic response.  Use raw polynomials so we can compute optimum
m1 <- lm(yield ~ rep + poly(rate,2,raw=TRUE), dat)
-coef(m1)[5]/(2*coef(m1)[6]) # Optimum is at 29

# Plot the model predictions
libs(latticeExtra)
newdat <- expand.grid(rep=levels(dat\$rep), rate=seq(25,150))
newdat\$pred <- predict(m1, newdat)
p1 <- aggregate(pred ~ rate, newdat, mean) # average reps
xyplot(yield ~ rate, data=dat, group=rep, type='b',
main="gomez.seedrate (with model predictions)", auto.key=list(columns=4)) +
xyplot(pred ~ rate, p1, type='l', col='black', lwd=2)
