yield

yield, ounces per plot

Details

Data collected at the Agricultural Sub-station in Karnal, India, in April 1978. A net area of 400 ft x 125 ft was harvested by dividing it into 80x25 units 5 ft x 5 ft after eliminating a minimum border of 3.5 ft all around the net area.

Field width: 80 plots * 5 feet = 400 feet

Field length: 25 rows * 5 feet = 125 feet

In a second paper, Iyer used this data to compare random vs. balanced arrangements of treatments to plots, with the conclusion that "it is very difficult to say which [method] is better. However, there is some tendency for the randomized arrangements to give more accurate results."
