Uniformity trial of millet

Description

Uniformity trial of millet at China in 1934.

Format

A data frame with 600 observations on the following 3 variables.

row

row

col

column

yield

yield (grams)

Details

Crop date estimated to be 1934.

Field was 100 ft x 100 ft. Plots were 15 feet long by 1 foot wide.

Field width: 100 plots * 1 foot = 100 feet

Field length: 6 plots * 15 feet = 100 feet

Li found the most efficient use of land was obtained with plats 15 feet long and two rowss wide. Also satisfactory would be one row 30 feet long.
