theobald.barley {agridat}R Documentation

Multi-environment trial of barley, multiple years & fertilizer levels

Description

Barley yields at multiple locs, years, fertilizer levels

Usage

data("theobald.barley")

Format

A data frame with 105 observations on the following 5 variables.

yield

yield, tonnes/ha

gen

genotype

loc

location, 5 levels

nitro

nitrogen kg/ha

year

year, 2 levels

Details

Theobald and Talbot used BUGS to fit a fully Bayesian model for yield response curves.

Locations of the experiment were in north-east Scotland.

Assumed nitrogen cost 400 pounds per tonne. Grain prices used were 100, 110, and 107.50 pounds per tonne for Georgie, Midas and Sundance.
