How should a basic study be set up or laid out in the field? One very common approach is to divide a field in half and compare the halves or possibly compare two fields in close proximity and see which variety or practice yields highest. This approach can end with very misleading results because of the variability that exists across a field or fields due to many factors.
This Quick Start Guide is adapted from the University of Minnesota 4-H Science of Agriculture Response Challenge Guide which was modeled after one from FIRST® LEGO® League. This guide is meant to help navigate the complete Science of Agriculture program; from recruiting team members all the way through celebrating at the end of the season, this guide contains suggestions to help along the way.
