Rice yield in wet & dry seasons with nitrogen fertilizer treatments

Description

Rice yield in wet & dry seasons with nitrogen fertilizer treatments

Format

A data frame with 96 observations on the following 4 variables.

season

season = wet/dry

nitrogen

nitrogen fertilizer kg/ha

rep

replicate

yield
