Abstract

This paper attempts to evaluate the application of randomized complete block design (RCBD) model in improving crop production. Data for the study was sourced from an experiment that lasted for three weeks. The data were analyzed using SPSS package. After exploring the concept of the RCBD technique, the response of the soil nutrient to the treatment of the various manure types revealed that, there was a significant difference on crop yield with respect to the type of manure treatment applied at P < 0.05, [F 39.719, P = 0.000]. Post Hoc pairwise comparison using the Tukey HSD test method indicated that, the mean score for poultry waste treatment effect was significantly different from every other manure type, also the mean score for NPK fertilizer was significantly different from the effect of palm waste, cattle dung, green manure and the control effects. Collectively, the findings of the study revealed that poultry waste application is effective in improving soil nutrients on the growing of crops.

Keywords— Randomized complete block design, two-way ANOVA test, multiple comparison tests, SPSS, optimization, Tukey HSD.
