Details

Four sorghum experiments at the Agronomy Farm at Manhattan, Kansas. Experiments E1,E2 grown in 1958. Expts E3,E5 grown in 1959.

Experiment E1.

Field width = 20 units * 14 inches = 23.3 ft.

Field length = 20 units * 10 feet = 200 feet.

Experiment E2-E3.

Field width = 20 units * 44 inches = 73 feet

Field length = 20 units * 5 ft = 100 feet.
