Treatment 2 .24 2 .26 2
Treatment 3 .24 2 .26 2
Treatment 4 .24 2 .26 2
Treatment 5 .02 2 .02 48
ADRZ calculation (equation (1)) 8 × 0.24 + 2 × 0.02 5 / 10 5 8 × 0.26 + 48 × 0.02 5 / 56 5 =3.61
Equation (2) calculation 4 × 0.48 2 + 1 × 0.04 2 / 5 4 × 0.52 2 + 1 × 0.96 48 / 5 =0.925

Treatment 2 .24 2 .26 2
Treatment 3 .24 2 .26 2
Treatment 4 .24 2 .26 2
Treatment 5 .01 4 .01 96
ADRZ calculation (equation (1)) 8 × 0.24 + 4 × 0.01 5 / 12 5 8 × 0.26 + 96 × 0.01 5 / 104 5 =5.59
Equation (2) calculation 4 × 0.48 2 + 1 × 0.04 4 / 5 4 × 0.52 2 + 1 × 0.96 96 / 5 =0.924
