Abstract

An introduction on how to collect and organize data in an experimental setting. This lesson uses Buffalo grass plots to demonstrate how visual qualities can be converted into a numerical values or data. Then learn how to use that data to create graphs and figures to help conceptualize which of the plots would be ideal for a turf grass setting.

Objectives

  • Convert visual data into numerical data using National Turf Evaluation Program ( NTEP ) guidelines
  • Evaluate the reliabillity of different scoring methods
  • Apply descriptive statistics to summarize data
  • Analyze and describe steps involved in Buffalo grass green up experiment
  • Create Bar graphs to evaluate different scoring methods
  • Compare trends of genotypes in graphical format
  • Apply the results of the plot data analysis to make selections for a desired trait in Buffalo grass
