RCB experiment of grape, disease incidence

Description

Disease incidence on grape leaves in RCB experiment with 6 different treatments.

Format

A data frame with 270 observations on the following 6 variables.

block

Block factor, 1-3

trt

Treatment factor, 1-6

vine

Vine factor, 1-3

shoot

Shoot factor, 1-5

diseased

Number of diseased leaves per shoot

total

Number of total leaves per shoot

Details

These data come from a study of downy mildew on grapes. The experiment was conducted at Wooster, Ohio, on the experimental farm of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, Ohio State University.

There were 3 blocks with 6 treatments. Treatment 1 is the unsprayed control. On 30 Sep 1990, disease incidence was measured. For each plot, 5 randomly chosen shoots on each of the 3 vines were observed. The canopy was closed and shoots could be intertwined. On each shoot, the total number of leaves and the number of infected leaves were recorded.
