Description

RCB experiment of oats, straw and grain, 9 fertilizer treatments

Usage

data("rothamsted.oats")

Format

A data frame with 96 observations on the following 6 variables.

block

block

trt

fertilizer treatment with 9 levels

grain

grain, pounds per plot

straw

straw, pounds per plot

row

row

col

column

Details

Oats (Grey Winter) grown at Rothamsted, Long Hoos field 1926.

Values of grain and straw are actual weights in pounds. Each plot was 1/40 acre. The plot dimensions are not given, but the Rothamsted report shows the field being square.

The treatment codes are: OA,OB,OC,OD = No top dressing. E/L = Early/late application. S/M = Sulphate or muriate of ammonia. 1/2 = Single or double dressing.
