Infestation of carrots by fly larvae

Description

Infestation of 16 carrot genotypes by fly larvae, comparing 2 treatments in 16 blocks.

Usage

data("jansen.carrot")

Format

A data frame with 96 observations on the following 5 variables.

trt

treatment

gen

genotype

block

block

n

number of carrots sampled per plot

y

number of carrots infested per plot

Details

This experiment was designed to compare different genotypes of carrots with respect to their resistance to infestation by larvae of the carrotfly.

There were 16 genotypes, 2 levels of pest-control treatments, conducted in 3 randomized complete blocks. About 50 carrots were sampled from each plot and evaluated. The data show the number of carrots and the number infested by fly larvae.

Examples


library(agridat)
data(jansen.carrot)
dat <- jansen.carrot

libs(lattice)
dotplot(gen ~ y/n, data=dat, group=trt, auto.key=TRUE,
        main="jansen.carrot",
        xlab="Proportion of carrots infected per block", ylab="Genotype")

## Not run: 
  # Not run because CRAN wants < 5 seconds per example.  This is close.
  libs(lme4)
  # Tentative model.  Needs improvement.
  m1 <- glmer(cbind(y,n-y) ~ gen*trt + (1|block),
              data=dat, family=binomial)
  summary(m1)
  # Todo: Why are these results different from Jansen?
  # Maybe he used ungrouped bernoulli data?  Too slow with 4700 obs
