Abstract

Efficiency of horticultural research could be enhanced by a) eliminating low-powered experiments and b) using customized designs that wed the resources at hand more closely with the desired experimental objectives. A strategy for customizing designs can be invaluable as part of a broader strategy of sequential research planning that could improve the total efficiency of a researcher’s effort. Calculation of power of the test and evaluation of designs augmented sequentially over time are exercises that have not been done by most researchers because of the labor and tedium involved. However, the same software familiar to many researchers during the data analysis phase of experimentation may be used as a tool to complete these and other research planning tasks.

The three IR4 Programs(Food-Use, Ornamentals, Biopesticides) research pest control needs that originate from stakeholders in each state. Pest control needs are documented as Project Clearance Requests. Researchable projects are identified at the National Food UseWorkshop anda research plan is developed at National Headquarters. This year IR4will research magnitude of residue projects to secure labels on 25 pest product and vegetable crop combinations. The list of projects will be distributed. The IR4 Project, Southern Region has augmented this process by establishing the Southern Region Performance Program(SRPP). Research scientists are asked to submit funding proposals to evaluate pest control products. Each proposal is scrutinized to prioritize needs and identify the most appropriate pest control product technologies. Product registrants, IR4 coordinators and stakeholders are consulted before a final decision is made. More than 70 research scientists from all states in the Southern Region will participate in the SRPP in 2005. Research data will be documented by in the IR4 National Data Mining process and many new project requests will be produced and others expanded to provide workshop participants information as they set priorities for IR4 researchin year2006.
