Yields of four grasses for a wide range of nitrogen fertilizer

Description

Yields of four grasses for a wide range of nitrogen fertilizer, conducted over 3 years.

Usage

data("reid.grasses")

Format

A data frame with 210 observations on the following 5 variables.

nitro

nitrogen, 21 numeric levels

year

Y1, Y2, or Y3

gen

genotype

drymatter

dry matter content

protein

protein content

Details

Experiment at the Hannah Research Institute, Ayr.

Single plots were planted to 4 different kinds of grasses. Within each plot, 21 nitrogen treatments were randomized.

Reid modeled the dry matter yield with four-parameter logistic curves of the form y = a - b exp(-cx^d).
