## Data from an Oats Field Trial

### Description

The yield of oats from a split-plot field trial using three varieties and
four levels of manurial treatment. The experiment was laid out in 6 blocks
of 3 main plots, each split into 4 sub-plots. The varieties were applied
to the main plots and the manurial treatments to the sub-plots.

### Usage

oats

### Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

`B`

- Blocks, levels I, II, III, IV, V and VI
`V`

- Varieties, 3 levels.
`N`

- Nitrogen (manurial) treatment, levels 0.0cwt, 0.2cwt, 0.4cwt and 0.6cwt,
showing the application in cwt/acre.
`Y`

- Yields in 1/4lbs per sub-plot, each of area 1/80 acre.
