Description

Balanced lattice experiment in cotton

Usage

1
data("cochran.lattice")

Format

A data frame with 80 observations on the following 5 variables.

y

percent of affected flower buds

rep

replicate

row

row

col

column

trt

treatment factor

Details

The experiment is a balanced lattice square with 16 treatments in a 4x4 layout in each of 5 replicates. The treatments were applied to cotton plants. Each plot was ten rows wide by 70 feet long (about 1/18 of an acre). (Estimated plot width is 34.5 feet.) Data were collected from the middle 4 rows. The data are the percentages of squares showing attack by boll weevils. A 'square' is the name given to a young flower bud.

The plot orientation is not clear.
