Abstract:In this paper the principles that should govern the planning of any codling moth (Carpocapsa pomonella) field experiment are discussed in detail. The proper size of the plot and the arrangement of the plots in randomized blocks is considered as being of major importance. The equipment necessary for handling efficiently such an experiment is discussed together with methods of sampling, data collection, and final analysis of data. It is considered that the importance of the field experiment warrants its greater usage in the future.
