Description

Density/spacing experiment for turnips in 3 blocks.

Usage

data("mead.turnip")

Format

A data frame with 60 observations on the following 4 variables.

yield

log yield (pounds/plot)

block

block

spacing

row spacing, inches

density

Examples

## Not run: 

library(agridat)
data(mead.turnip)
dat <- mead.turnip

dat$ratef <- factor(dat$density)
dat$widthf <- factor(dat$spacing)

m1 <- aov(yield ~ block + ratef + widthf + ratef:widthf, data=dat)
anova(m1) # table 12.10 in Mead

# Similar to Piepho fig 10
libs(lattice)
xyplot(yield ~ log(spacing)|ratef, data=dat,
       auto.key=list(columns=5),
       main="mead.turnip - log(yield) for each density",
       group=ratef)
