Description

Balanced incomplete block design in corn

Format

A data frame with 52 observations on the following 3 variables.

loc

location/block, 13 levels

gen

genotype/line, 13 levels

yield

yield, pounds/plot

Details

Incomplete block design. Each loc/block has 4 genotypes/lines. The blocks are planted at different locations.

Conducted in 1943 in North Carolina.
