Uniformity trial of barley

Description

Uniformity trial of barley in Germany

Usage

data("piepho.barley.uniformity")

Format

A data frame with 1080 observations on the following 5 variables.

row

row ordinate

col

column ordinate

yield

yield per plot

Details

Uniformity trial of barley at Ihinger Hof farm, conducted by the University of Hohenheim, Germany, in 2007.

Note: The paper by Piepho says "The trial had 30 rows and 36 columns. Plot widths were 1.90 m along rows and 3.73 m along columns." However, the SAS code supplement to the paper, called "PBR_1654_sm_example1.sas", has row=1-36, col=1-30. We cannot determine which dimension is "row" and which is "column", and therefore cannot determine the actual dimensions of the field.

  # Note these parameters are basically at the boundary of the parameter
  # space. Questionable fit.
