[R] About uniroot error

Thanks for your answers. I continue to learn R and now I am detained in an
error with uniroot that I see happens to others but I can not find the
solution. Next the code

x1 <- BAaxOrd$V1
y1 <- BAaxOrd$V2
x1R <- BAaxOrdRCOS$V1
y1R <- BAaxOrdRCOS$V2
FCOS1 <- splinefun(smooth.spline(x1,y1))
FRCOS1 <- splinefun(smooth.spline(x1R,y1R))
FCOS1 <- Vectorize(FCOS1)
FRCOS1 <- Vectorize(FRCOS1)

        df <- read.csv(input$file1$datapath,
                       header = input$header,
                       sep = "\t",
                       quote = '"')
      error = function(e) {
        # return a safeError if a parsing error occurs

    #if(input$disp == "head") {
     # return(head(df))
    #else {

      # Determine Carbon Reserve
      for (row in 1:nrow(df)) {
        if(df$ts==1) {
           prof <-
           limsup <- prof + df$pu
           reserva <- integrate(FRCOS1,prof,limsup)$value

The if is because there are several types of soil, but I only put one.  The
error is

Warning in if (is.na(f.lower)) stop("f.lower = f(lower) is NA") :
  the condition has length > 1 and only the first element will be used
Warning in if (is.na(f.upper)) stop("f.upper = f(upper) is NA") :
  the condition has length > 1 and only the first element will be used
Warning: Error in uniroot: f() values at end points not of opposite sign

The file that I load with data has a single row with the values ts = 1,
carbon = 2.04 and pu = 15 (I left only that row to be able to determine the
origin of the error). The functions FCOS1 and FRCOS1 are monotone
decreasing.Graphic attachment of FCOS1

I would appreciate some help in this regard

thanks a lot
