##### Classical N, P, K Factorial Experiment

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`

##### Note

This dataset is also contained in R 3.0.2 and later.

##### 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).
