weiss.lattice {agridat}R Documentation

Lattice experiment in soybeans.

Description

Lattice experiment in soybeans.

Usage

data("weiss.lattice")

Format

A data frame with 196 observations on the following 5 variables.

yield

yield (bu/ac)

gen

genotype factor, 49 levels

rep

rep factor, 4 levels

col

column

row

row

Details

Yield test of 49 soybean varieties, grown at Ames, IA, in 1938. Plot dimensions were 3x16 feeet. The varieties are compared to variety 26 (Mukden).

It is not clear how the reps were positioned in the field. On the one hand, the middle three columns of each rep/square are higher yielding, giving the appearance of the reps being stacked on top of each other. On the other hand, the analysis by Weiss uses 24 degrees of freedom 4*(7-1) to fit a separate effect for each column in each rep (instead of across reps).
