Potency of two herbicides

Share:

Description

Data are from an experiment, comparing the potency of the two herbicides glyphosate and bentazone in white mustard Sinapis alba.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 68 observations on the following 3 variables.

Dose

a numeric vector containing the dose in g/ha.

Herbicide

a factor with levels Bentazone Glyphosate (the two herbicides applied).

DryMatter

a numeric vector containing the response (dry matter in g/pot).

Details

The lower and upper limits for the two herbicides can be assumed identical, whereas slopes and ED50 values are different (in the log-logistic model).
