Details

Within each 100-foot row, the first 20 feet were harvested as a single plot, and then the rest of the row was harvested in 5-foot lengths.

Crop location is unknown, but likely Southeast Asia given Love's work teaching in China. Date circa 1930.

Possibly more information would be in the collected papers of Harry Love at Cornell: http://rmc.library.cornell.edu/EAD/htmldocs/RMA00890.html Cotton - Plot Technic Study 1930-1932. Box 3, Folder 34
