Abstract: Advance applied science researches have experienced a dramatic change in knowledge and an exponential increase in technology. A lot of these technical developments involve agricultural researches and these researches deal with groups rather than individual cases and usually field and experimental study.
The goal of applied research is to provide data to support existing knowledge by filling information gaps or develop new methods. Agricultural research requires proper study design, management, data collection and analysis to obtain statistically sound results. Agricultural researchers and scientists have an important role to play in the agricultural production and development of a nation. In view of the day to day radical changes in agricultural research, the scenario is becoming tough for agricultural scientists and associated scholars.
Statistical science is concerned with the aspect of theory of design of experiments and sample investigation and drawing valid inferences from using various statistical methods. The statisticians design the experiments, trials and analyze the data and interpret the facts. Statistical design and technique helps to describe the involvement of complex phenomena and behavior of agricultural growth. The impact of associated factor can be analyzed with the help of simple statistical design, sampling techniques with inferential statistics.
The techniques of drawing valid interpretation depend on how the data has been gathered and also depending upon the research objective. This paper describes the basic concept of statistical research
