The key word is 'production rate.' That suggests that the experiment looks at changes in the same experimental subjects over time. They have three groups of tomato plants; each group of tomato plant was measured repeatedly. That suggests that a line chart with points for each group plotted and connected with lines - to indicate continuous change - would be the most appropriate and meaningful way to present the results. In terms of your assignment question, there is a right and wrong answer. And I hope I've given you the right one. I'd just like to point out that in terms of getting this problem or one like it in the real world, what is the 'right' answer or the 'right' way to do this is subjective.
