Corn: Corn Yield

CornR Documentation

Corn Yield


William Gosset analyzed data from an experiment comparing the yield of regular and kiln-dried corn.


A data frame with 11 observations on the following 2 variables.

  • reg yield of regular corn (lbs/acre)

  • kiln yield of kiln-dried corn (lbs/acre)


Gosset (Student) reported on the results of seeding plots with two different kinds of seed. Each type of seed (regular and kiln-dried) was planted in adjacent plots, accounting for 11 pairs of "split" plots.


These data are also available at DASL, the data and story library (
