October 19th, 2022 Statistical analysis of trial data Trials often have a central question that needs to be answered. It’s usually in the last step of the trial, the statistical analysis of the collected data, where answers to the question emerge. To help with this important step we’ve added some more statistical analysis capabilities to QuickTrials. In a new “Analysis” tab in [...]

What is the optimal size, shape and number of plots for field trials? – 13 December 2021

By |2021-12-13T15:13:41+01:00December 13th, 2021|Uncategorized|

All about plots When designing the physical aspects of a crop experiment, there are many choices to be made surrounding plots for the researcher to contend with: How many plots should my experiment have? What size and shape should my plots be? How can I prevent interactions between plots? Luckily for researchers today there are straightforward solutions to these problems and QuickTrials can help to implement [...]

How to Choose your Experimental Design – 15 November 2021

By |2021-12-08T07:33:42+01:00November 16th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Experimental design choices In agricultural research it is important to choose the right experimental design at the beginning of your trial so that the analyses produced at the end of the season are statistically meaningful. Before we look further at the different types of designs, it is worth taking some time to understand why we need them. Suppose a plant breeder chooses two plots of land [...]

Flexibility where it counts – 20 September 2021

By |2021-09-20T19:23:36+02:00September 20th, 2021|Feature updates|

Increased Flexibility A common problem with trials is that there are a number of datapoints that are not always known at the start of the trial. For example you may need to record specific details for each fruit that grows on a tree, without knowing how many fruits will actually grow.    We handled this in the past with legacy observation groups where a user could check the box “Allow [...]

A new trial creation method – 11 May 2021

By |2021-05-11T21:43:05+02:00May 11th, 2021|Feature updates|

Common ways of trialling In QuickTrials there are different ways a trial can be defined depending on the outcome you want to achieve. We’ve been listening to our customers and also looking at how traits are used over time.  A key aspect is how to measure a trait, from an actual measurement technique point of view, but also from a timing and sampling perspective. Getting this right makes it easier [...]

The power of formulas! – 19 January 2021

By |2022-07-29T09:13:52+02:00January 19th, 2021|Preview|

  Why formulas? Formulas provide a way to transform data in real-time so users can see calculated values and normalised data immediately.  A formula can be used for simple conversions (Eg. acres to hectares or m^2), or for calculating the days to a certain growth stage from an entered date or calculating the effective, humidity adjusted and normalised (t/ha) marketable yield per plant. By using formulas to normalise data, [...]

Enhancing the mobile experience – 24 November 2020

By |2020-11-26T21:41:16+01:00November 24th, 2020|Preview|

  Enhancing the mobile experience QuickTrials is used for many different types of trials and set-ups. While this is great for trailing companies it can be a challenge from a user interface point of view, especially on small mobile screens. Sometimes field staff want to see full plot details and headers, while other times they want to focus more on comparing data values to look for anomalies. We’ve recently [...]

Experimental Design Preview When setting up an experimental design, there are often many parameters involved to define the actual block and plot layout. To make this faster and more intuitive, we added a live preview of the layout at the bottom of the page. This preview allows you to play with the parameters and see exactly what will happen to the layout.  It visually shows what you can expect as [...]
