Hi.
There is no need to do this in a for loop. Here is one approach:

x <- read.table(textConnection("Site Prof H

1      1     24
1      1     16
1      1     67
1      2     23
1      2     56
1      2     45
2      1     67
2      1     46"), header = TRUE)

closeAllConnections()
x
cbind(x,newCol=unlist(tapply(x[,3],paste(x[,1],x[,2],sep=""), function(x) x-min(x)))

   Site Prof H newCol

111    1    1 24      8
112    1    1 16      0
113    1    1 67     51
121    1    2 23      0
122    1    2 56     33
123    1    2 45     22
211    2    1 67     21
212    2    1 46      0
