Classical N, P, K Factorial Experiment

Description

A classical N, P, K (nitrogen, phosphate, potassium) factorial experiment on the growth of peas conducted on 6 blocks. Each half of a fractional factorial design confounding the NPK interaction was used on 3 of the plots.

Usage

1

Format

The npk data frame has 24 rows and 5 columns:

block

which block (label 1 to 6).

N

indicator (0/1) for the application of nitrogen.

P

indicator (0/1) for the application of phosphate.

K

indicator (0/1) for the application of potassium.

yield

Yield of peas, in pounds/plot (the plots were (1/70) acre).

Note

This dataset is also contained in R 3.0.2 and later.
