## Potency of two herbicides

### Description

Data are from an experiment, comparing the potency of the two herbicides glyphosate and bentazone in
white mustard *Sinapis alba*.

### Usage

`data(S.alba)`

### Format

A data frame with 68 observations on the following 3 variables.

`Dose`

a numeric vector containing the dose in g/ha.

`Herbicide`

a factor with levels

`Bentazone`

`Glyphosate`

(the two herbicides applied).`DryMatter`

a numeric vector containing the response (dry matter in g/pot).

### Details

The lower and upper limits for the two herbicides can be assumed identical, whereas slopes and ED50 values are different (in the log-logistic model).
