Details

Experiment conducted in 1916. Crop was Kerson oats. Each plot covered 1/30th acre. Oats were drilled in plats 66 inches wide by 16 rods long. The drill was 66 inches wide. Plats were separated by a space of 16 inches between outside drill rows.

The source document includes three photographs of the field.

1 acre = 43560 sq feet

1/30 acre = 1452 sq feet = 16 rods * 16.5 ft/rod * 5.5 ft

Field width: 3 plats * 16 rods/plat * 16.5 ft/rod = 792 feet

Field length: 69 plats * 5.5 ft + 68 gaps * 1.33 feet = 469 feet
