Biosecurity, pests, weeds and diseases
Department of Agriculture
An Australian co-operation with the national agricultural research project Thailand.
This short course is intended to cover aspects of experimental design, sampling and statistical analysis for researchers in Entomology and Plant Pathology.
The basic principles of experimental design are the same for plant protection research as they are in other areas of research. Problems in plant protection arise from the variation of the data, the complexity of the systems and interactions with environmental factors. In many cases, standard designs are quite adequate.
