### Summary: Important points

CRD

• It is one way classification
• Experimental materials should be homogeneous
• It provides the maximum number of degree of freedom for error
• Local control is not used
• Error degree of freedom is N-n2

RBD

• It is a two way classification
• Fertility gradient should be in one direction
• Use up to 20 treatments
• It provides more accurate results than CRD
• RBD utilizes all the three basic principles of field experimentation

LSD

• It is a three way classification
• Number of rows and columns are equal
• Fertility gradient should be in two direction
• The minimum error degree of freedom should be 12
• Number of rows is equal to number of column and number of treatments

SPD

• It is the sub division of the main plot

Confidence limit: The range within which the true populations mean lies is confidence limit.

Biometry: The application of statistical concepts and procedures to study of biological problems.
