Multi-environment trial of oats in India

Description

Multi-environment trial of oats in India, 13 genotypes, 3 year, 2 loc, 5 reps

Usage

data("shaw.oats")

Format

A data frame with 390 observations on the following 5 variables.

env

environment, 2 levels

year

year, 3 levels

block

block, 5 levels

gen

genotype variety, 13 levels

yield

yield of oats, pounds per plot

Details

An oat trial in India of 11 hybrid oats compared to 2 established high-yielding varieties, labeled L and M. The trail was conducted at 2 locations. The size and exact locations of the plots varied from year to year.

At Pusa, the crop was grown without irrigation. At Karnal the crop was given 2-3 irrigations. Five blocks were used, each plot 1000 square feet. In 1932, variety L was high-yielding at Pusa, but low-yielding at Karnal.

Shaw used this data to illustrate ANOVA for a multi-environment trial.
