Data recording for agroforestry experiments

  • Janet Riley


Examples of typical data-sets from agroforestry trials are considered and difficulties with the recording of such data are discussed. Suggestions for efficient data recording for a number of agroforestry trials are made so that easy data-checking, efficient computer entry and accurate analysis can be produced without the need for excessive data manipulation at each stage. General recommendations for data-recording from agroforestry trials are given.
