Description

Yields from treatment for mildew control

Format

A data frame with 38 observations on the following 4 variables.

plot

plot number

trt

treatment factor, 4 levels

block

block factor, 9 levels

yield

grain yield, tons/ha

Details

There were four spray treatments: 0 (none), 1 (early), 2 (late), R (repeated).

Each treatment occurs once between each of the 9 ordered pairs of the other treatments.

The first and last plot are not assigned to a block.
