This bespoke e-learning application, which is delivered on Moodle at the University of Nottingham, allows students to design a field experiment, taking account of within-field variation.

Students can choose the appropriate experimental design, number of genotypes to be studied, plot size/shape and the number of replicates. The location of the experiment, within an inherently variable field, is also up to the student.

Students can export and analyse their subsequent yield data in order to draw conclusions from their results and produce a report that investigates the effectiveness of their own experimental design.
