How to lay out, maintain and record a Randomized Block Trial Basic handling and preparation of data for analysis
Agricultural trials depend on the cooperation of everyone involved: project leaders and research workers, the station manager and foreman and the field technician. Most field trials are set out as Randomized Block Designs (RDB), because they are simple. If everyone involved understands how RBDs work they are likely to succeed. The leaflet How to lay out, maintain and record a Randomized Block Trial sets the principles out in simple language that everyone can follow. Similarly the leaflet Basic handling and preparation of data for analysis shows the importance of collecting data carefully and entering it into a computer for conversion into a form on which a basic statistical analysis can be performed. These practical leaflets are the first two in a series being produced by the Pacific Regional Agricultural Programme. Pacific Regional Agricultural Programme, GPO Box 12621, Suva, FIJI
