Description

Infestation of apple shoots by apple canker.

Usage

data("jansen.apple")

Format

A data frame with 36 observations on the following 5 variables.

inoculum

inoculum level

gen

genotype/variety

block

block

y

number of inoculations developing canker

n

number of inoculations

Details

Shoots of apple trees were infected with fungus Nectria galligena, which may cause apple canker.

The incoulum density treatment had 3 levels, measured in macroconidia per ml.
