Split-strip-plot of soybeans

Description

Split-strip-plot of soybeans

Format

A data frame with 160 observations on the following 8 variables.

block

block factor, 4 levels

plot

plot number

cultivar

cultivar factor, 4 levels

spacing

row spacing

pop

population (thousand per acre)

yield

yield

row

row

col

column

Details

Within each block, cultivars were whole plots. Withing whole plots, spacing was applied in strips vertically, and population was applied in strips horizontally.
