Details

A uniformity trial with chari (sorghum) at Rawalpindi Agricultural Station (Pakistan) in kharif (monsoon season) in 1936. Each plot was 36 feet by 30.25 feet. The source document does not describe the orientation of the plots, but the fertility map shown in Narain figure 1 shows the plots are taller than wide.

Field width: 10 plots * 30.25 feet

Field length: 16 plots * 36 feet
