[R] Calculating mean together with split

I have a table called npl containing results of simulations.

It contains about 19000 entries and the structure looks like this:

  NoPlants                  sim run year DensPlants
1        6 lng_cs99_renosterbos   1    4    0.00192


it has 43 different entries for sim and year goes from 1 to 100, and run from 1 to 5.

I would like to calculate the mean of DensPlants for each simulation and each year seperately, i.e. calculating the mean for all combinations of sim and year over run.

I can use

split(npl, npl$sim)

to split npl into different groups each containing the entries for one parameterset - but where to go from there?
