Description

Uniformity trial of barley at Cambridge, England, 1978.

Format

A data frame with 196 observations on the following 3 variables.

row

row

col

column

yield

grain yield, kg

Details

A uniformity trial of spring barley planted in 1978. Conducted by the Plant Breeding Institute in Cambridge, England.

Each plot is 5 feet wide, 14 feet long.

Field width: 7 plots * 14 feet = 98 feet

Field length: 28 plots * 5 feet = 140 feet
