Statistical Design and Analysis for Intercropping by Walter T. Federer

By Walter T. Federer

Intercropping is a technique of maintaining or bettering soil constitution by way of starting to be or extra vegetation at the related box. it's a means of extensive software and of growing to be value for either advertisement and subsistence farmers. This textbook presents a complete survey of the layout and research of intercropping experiments. Its major issues are that recommendations akin to relative indices give the chance to hide a wide selection of stipulations, and that statistical versions for density-yield relatives permit suggestions to be made to growers of vegetation. hence, graduate scholars and researchers in records, biometry, and agriculture whose learn comprises intercropping will locate this a useful textual content and reference.

Sample text

To illustrate, consider a varietal trial involving several varieties of maize. The treatment design would consist of each of the v varieties being grown alone, sole crop or monoculture, and each of the varieties being intercropped with the supplemental crop or crops. This type of treatment design allows a direct comparison of the monoculture with the intercrop yields. The experiment design may be any of the blocked, row x column, split plot, split block, or other design; it should be selected to control experimental heterogeneity and to allow comparisons of most interest to be estimated with the greatest precision.

The standard analysis for a randomized complete block design as presented, for example, in Snedecor and Cochran (1980) or in Federer (1955), was used. =1 C for C i = 0, r = number of replicates on each of the m varieties, Y:i = total for treatment i, and = mean for treatment i (the dot in Y:i = Y"i indicates a summation over the subscript h).

In developing models, considerable thought needs to be given to the population structure for each variable under consideration. Knowing and understanding the nature of the sampling, experimental, and observational units are a necessity for selecting an appropriate response model. In many cases, it will be necessary to use the best approximate model and to know the effect of using an approximation in interpreting data from an experiment. Many problems arise when considering a statistical analysis for the data from an intercropping experiment.
