I think you are right on target. This is the wise connection between
the phenomenological approach and the statistical, "scientific"
approach. Scientists should be guided to relevant work by anecdotes,
casual observation, folk knowledge, and intuition.

Trials with minimal, or no replication help eliminate avenues of work
that represent a low probability of success. Scientists do this too.
IMO, this is one of the keys to responsible and efficient ag research.
