Uniformity trial of cotton

Description

Uniformity trial of cotton at Narrabri, New South Wales, 1984.

Format

A data frame with 288 observations on the following 3 variables.

row

row

col

column

yield

lint yield, kg/ha divided by 10

Details

Cotton uniformity trial grown at Narrabri, New South Wales, 1984-1985. Plots were 12m long, 1m apart, 12 rows by 24 columns, with an irrigation furrow between columns.

Field width: 24 plots * 1 m = 24 m

Field length: 12 plots * 12 m = 144 m
