Objectives of the Course
Experimental scientists and technicians employed in laboratories, industry, medicine or agriculture throughout the world run experiments. The classical experimental approach is to study each experimental variable separately. This one-variable-at-a-time strategy is easy to handle and widely employed. But is it the most efficient way to approach an experimental problem? The first people to ask this question were English agronomists and statisticians working at the beginning of the century. Agronomy is somewhat different from mostexperimental sciences in that there are almost always a large number of variables and each experiment lasts a long time. As they could not run large numbers of trials, they worked to develop the best research strategy. They found that the classical method was not appropriateand developed a revolutionary approach which guaranteed experimenters an optimal research strategy.
