Statistics and experimental design: training course in Tashkent

Good science requires well designed experiments and rigorous data analysis. A training course on Field experimental design and analysis, was held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, for scientists from Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. The course, held during 14-26 February, was funded by the German agency BMZ/GTZ. The topics included: statistical principles, alpha-designs, genotype x environment interactions and spatial methods for analysis of field trials.

Participants were addressed by key national policy makers from Uzbekistan: Prof. Sherali Nurmatov, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Water Resources, and Prof. Amir Amanov, head of the national agricultural research program. Both were emphatic about the need for such initiatives, and urged ICARDA to continue its capacity development efforts. The course was organized by ICARDA’s Tashkent team, led by Dr Jozef Turok, Coordinator, Central Asia and Caucasus Regional Program.
