Details

A field about 1/4 acre was sown in three consecutive years (beginning in 1929-1930) with barley, wheat, and lentil.

At harvest, borders 3 feet on east and west and 6 feet on north and south were removed. The field was divided into plots four feet square, which were harvested separately, measured in grams.

Fertility contours of the field were somewhat similar across years, with correlation values across years 0.45, 0.48, 0.21.

Field width: 15 plots * 4 feet = 60 feet.

Field length: 26 plots * 4 feet = 104 feet.

Conclusions:

"An experimental field which may be sensibly uniform for one crop or for one season may not be so for another crop or in a different season" p. 592.
