Corporate Profile

AGROBASE & R


Agronomix Software, Inc., has developed a data link to the open source R statistical software (www.r-project.org), used increasingly worldwide. We have developed this link in response to the requests from our users worldwide. To use this powerful statistical software with AGROBASE Generation II, the user must first download R from their desired CRAN (www.cran.r-project.org), install on their computer or server since it is not at all distributed with AGROBASE Generation II. With our documentation, our users can establish the link with AGROBASE Generation II. We have developed R-scripts for the statistic analysis of a number of experimental designs, including multi-location and multi-year, especially when the data is more unbalanced. While AGROBASE Generation II has its own suite of statistical analyses, this link to R provides access to more advanced statistical analyses for our users. This link offers some exciting possibilities for agronomists, plant breeders, and plant scientists.
