About this book

Useful as a text or reference, this book presents various experimental designs, reasons for selecting each design, and statistical analysis. This second edition features a new chapter on covariance analysis to help readers understand how to reduce the error associated with an experiment and examine covariances among selected variables. It includes expanded material on multiple regression analysis, ANOVA, and ANCOVA. It also provides additional examples, problems, case studies, a solutions manual, and a Minitab guide at the end of several chapters to assist in data analysis. This text remains an ideal introduction to designing experiments in agriculture, environmental science, and natural sciences.


The Nature of Agricultural Research. Key Assumptions of Experimental Designs. Designs for Reducing Error. Single-Factor Experimental Designs. Two-Factor Experimental Designs. Three (or More)- Factor Experimental Designs. Treatment Means Comparison.Sample Designs Over Time. Regression and Correlation Analysis. Covariance Analysis. Appendices.
