RCB experiment of turnips

Description

RCB experiment of turnips, 2 treatments for planting date and density

Format

A data frame with 64 observations on the following 6 variables.

gen

genotype

date

planting date, levels 21Aug1990 28Aug1990

density

planting density, 1, 2, 4, 8 kg/ha

block

block, 4 levels

yield

yield

Details

This is a randomized block experiment with 16 treatments allocated at random to each of four blocks. The 16 treatments were combinations of two varieties, two planting dates, and four densities.

Lee et al (2008) proposed an analysis using mixed models with changing treatment variances.

Piepho (2009) proposed an ordinary ANOVA using transformed data.
