Uniformity trial of cotton

Description

Uniformity trial of cotton in India in 1934.

Usage

data("panse.cotton.uniformity")

Format

A data frame with 1280 observations on the following 3 variables.

row

row

col

column

yield

total yield per plot, grams

Details

A uniformity trial of cotton at the Institute of Plant Industry, Indore, India.

The trial consisted of 128 rows of cotton with a spacing of 14 in between rows and length 186 feet 8 in.

Each harvested plot was 4 rows wide and 4 ft 8 in long, measuring 1/2000 acre.

Four pickings were made between Nov 1933 and Jan 1934. The data here are the total yields.

The fertility map shows appreciable variation, not following any systematic pattern.

Field length: 40 plots * 4 feet 8 inches = 206 feet 8 inches

Field width: 32 plots * 4 rows/plot * 14 inches/row = 150 feet

Conclusions: Lower error was obtained when the plots were long rows instead of across the rows.
