Enhancing agronomic research through precise statistical analysis with Genstat

Deben Agronomy is dedicated to giving potato and vegetable growers the right guidance to grow better crops. They use their expert knowledge gained through independently generated trial data to provide actionable insights that boost crop yields and promote sustainable practices. 

The challenge: Cultivating confidence

In the pursuit of their research endeavours, Deben Agronomy faced a pressing challenge. They needed robust statistical analysis for their vegetable field trials data, specifically focusing on techniques like analysis of variance. Their primary goal was to instil confidence in the results derived from experimental trials—a critical factor for their decision-making and for their clients too. 

 For a field research scientist like those at Deben Agronomy, having confidence in their findings hinges on the ability to definitively attribute differences in results to specific treatments rather than mere chance. Achieving this level of accuracy was paramount in maintaining the integrity of their research and recommendations. To meet this challenge, they turned to Genstat. 

Choosing the best tool: The decision process

Finding the right solution involved a meticulous evaluation of available options. While considering various alternatives, Deben Agronomy's experts harkened back to their prior experience with Genstat. The intuitive nature and ease of use they had encountered in the past left a lasting impression. As a result, despite exploring other choices, Genstat's familiarity and reliability made it the clear choice.
