RootStock: Growth of Apple Trees from Different Root Stocks

Description Usage Format Details Source References Examples

Description

In a classic experiment carried out from 1918 to 1934, growth of apple trees of six different rootstocks were compared on four measures of size.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 48 observations on the following 5 variables.

rootstock

a factor with levels 1 2 3 4 5 6

girth4

a numeric vector: trunk girth at 4 years (mm x 100)

ext4

a numeric vector: extension growth at 4 years (m)

girth15

a numeric vector: trunk girth at 15 years (mm x 100)

weight15

a numeric vector: weight of tree above ground at 15 years (lb x 1000)

Details

This is a balanced, one-way MANOVA design, with n=8 trees for each rootstock.
