Edge-rows are different from inner rows; and rows that have been run over by the wheels of the spraying tractor are different from those that haven't). g. in most multi-row drills different spouts usually sow seed at different spacings or depths). g. the north end of all plots of a block may be on land of better fertility that the south end). 54 SAMPLING Finally there may be (in fact, there always is) a variation from point to point over short distances, more or less at random, within each plot — small-scale patchiness.

All tapes tend to go into kinks and steel tapes can cut a bare leg. Most tapes have both metric and imperial markings (an advantage over chains). e. 92 in. so that 100 links = 66 ft this is the basic reason why, until recently, many plots at Rothamsted were equal in length to a cricket pitch). (3) The corners of the experiment (and any other points likely to be needed often for sighting) should be marked with substantial poles or stakes. The intermediate points can be marked with small pegs of wood or metal.

If a third point C is required on the line joining two fixed points A and Β one man standing at (say) A directs a helper to move a marker until it and those at A and Β are in alignment. ) If the third point required lies beyond (say) A it can be settled by one man 'sighting-back', that is moving his own marker sideways until he sees it, and those at A and Β in alignment. 3 PARALLELOGRAM-SHAPED PLOTS In most experiments the plots are rectangles or squares but this is not essential and (as in the case of the barley experiment started at Rothamsted in 1852) if the site available is roughly a parallelogram with adjacent sides at an angle of say 80° you may consider making each plot a parallelogram so that the experiment conforms to the site and uses it fully.
