It was wonderful to meet many of you in person in Austin, Texas. Great to
put faces to the names! The ideas that come across sanet are usually
inspiring and stimulating.
This is why I am submitting the following practical questions. The first
arose in planning this spring's legume trials here. For those of you who do
small plot work with legumes, how do you inoculate the seed for each plot?
Last year I dumped each small quantity of seed into a plastic bag, added
Coke as a sticker, poured in inoculant, and shook--then poured it back into
the planting envelope. There has to be a better (faster) way! (We started
with seed that had already been packaged--perhaps quickest is to inoculate
larger batches of seed, then package into the smaller envelopes.)
A second question arose at an Austin session on farming systems research.
What are some experimental designs and statistical methods that people have
used in doing systems research? Just as the session ended, we started to get
into some nuts and bolts about how to actually design and analyze a systems
project (contrasted with simply describing such an approach). Any ideas?
Thanks a lot for your experience,
