Our distance education master's in Agronomy program is celebrating 20 years of student success
By Matthew Dzievit, graduate student
Field trials investigating yield benefits of agronomic inputs utilize randomization, replication, and
blocking as fundamentals of statistical design. Plot size is an overlooked design fundamental that could
influence the outcome of trials, as fields possess a number of characteristics that tend to be
nonhomogeneous and unpredictable.
