Calsam: a program for estimating numbers of samples required in field experiments

Calsam: a program for estimating numbers of samples required in field experiments

Field Crops Research 11(4): 399-402

A computer program, written in FORTRAN and BASIC, which calculates the number of samples per experimental unit required to estimate treatment means to a specified precision given estimates of sampling and experimental variation is described. The calculations are appropriate for completely randomised and randomised complete block designs. A copy of the program may be obtained from the authors.
