Description

RCB trial of rice measuring white heads

Usage

1
data("gomez.nonnormal2")

Format

A data frame with 42 observations on the following 3 variables.

gen

genotype

rep

replicate

white

percentage of white heads

Details

The data are the percent of white heads from a rice variety trial of 14 varieties with 3 reps. Because many of the values are less than 10, the suggested data transformation is sqrt(x+.5).
