Description

Yields of 8 barley varieties in 1913.

Usage

1
data("beaven.barley")

Format

A data frame with 160 observations on the following 4 variables.

row

row

col

column

gen

genotype

yield

yield (grams)

Details

Eight races of barley were grown on a regular pattern of plots.

These data were prepared from Richey (1926) because the text was cleaner.

Each plot was planted 40 inches on a side, but only the middle square 36 inches on a side was harvested.

Field width: 32 plots * 3 feet = 96 feet

Field length: 5 plots * 3 feet = 15 feet
