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 [...]
