mead.cauliflower {agridat}R Documentation

Leaves for cauliflower plants at different times

Description

Leaves for cauliflower plants at different times in two years.

Format

A data frame with 14 observations on the following 4 variables.

year

year factor

degdays

degree days above 32F

leaves

number of leaves

Details

Numbers of leaves for 10 cauliflower plants in each of two years, and temperature degree-days above 32F, divided by 100.

The year is 1956-57 or 1957-58.

Over the data range shown, the number of leaves is increasing linearly. Extrapolating backwards shows that a linear model is inappropriate, and so a glm is used.
