This workshop covers the basic topics in experimental analysis of agronomic experiments. It is intended for researchers working in the field of agronomy with an understand of the statistical package R (Introduction to R workshop) and the design of agronomic experiments (Introduction to Experimental Design workshop). In this course we review ANOVA concepts (Linear Models) and learn more complex experimental analysis concepts – Linear Mixed Models – including spatial modelling for the analysis of factorial experiments, blocked designs, and split-plot agronomic experiments. Participants will learn to identify the correct model to use and perform analyses of data resulting from standard agronomic designs using R and ASReml-R and interpret the results.
Why should you do this course?
- SAGI-STH has developed the Biometry Education Initiative to tailor to the needs of researchers in the Australian Grains Industry.
- The course is run by grains industry researchers, for grains industry researchers. Researchers in other agricultural industries are also more than welcome to attend!
- The course is non-threatening, with plenty of examples and hands-on practice to help you get familiar with the material.
What will you get out of it?
- Confidence to perform statistical analysis of your experiments.
- Practice using R and some relevant packages for real world examples.
- A refresher on statistics but with application to your research.
- An understanding of how the analysis of an experiment relates to its design.
