Uniformity trial of mangolds

Description

Uniformity trial of mangolds at Rothamsted Experiment Station, England, 1910.

Usage

data("mercer.mangold.uniformity")

Format

A data frame with 200 observations on the following 4 variables.

row

row

col

column

roots

root yields, pounds

leaves

leaf yields, pounds

Details

Grown in 1910.

Each plot was 3 drills, each drill being 2.4 feet wide. Plots were 1/200 acres, 7.2 feet by 30.25 feet long The "length of the plots runs with the horizontal lines of figures [in Table I], this being also the direction of the drills across the field."

Field width: 10 plots * 30.25ft = 302.5 feet

Field length: 20 plots * 7.25 ft = 145 feet
