Guidelines for Improved Agronomic Management and Economic Evaluation of Crop Rotation Trials in Mediterranean Environments

  • J. D. H. Keatinge (a1) and K. Somel (a1)

Summary

This paper offers guidelines for successful crop rotation trials derived from experience at ICARDA in the period 1980–1990. Emphasis is placed on the need to determine realistically the likelihood of the long-term, successful completion of the trial and the importance of considering carefully experimental design criteria prior to trial establishment. This involves assessment of what primary and secondary information to collect for the trial, and over what duration, in order to ensure an appropriate return for the large investment generally undertaken in any crop rotation trial.
