## Classical N, P, K Factorial Experiment

### Description

A classical N, P, K (nitrogen, phosphate, potassium) factorial
experiment on the growth of peas conducted on 6 blocks. Each half of a
fractional factorial design confounding the NPK interaction was used
on 3 of the plots.

### Usage

npk

### Format

The `npk`

data frame has 24 rows and 5 columns:

`block`

- which block (label 1 to 6).
`N`

- indicator (0/1) for the application of nitrogen.
`P`

- indicator (0/1) for the application of phosphate.
`K`

- indicator (0/1) for the application of potassium.
`yield`

- Yield of peas, in pounds/plot (the plots were (1/70) acre).
