A member of the Biometry Hub, I started an MSc (Biometry) research project in September, 2017. A feasibility study for ranked set sampling in typical modern agronomy trials under different designs will be conducted, with the aim to compare the performance of simple random sampling (SRS) and ranked set sampling (RSS) under different field experimental designs for treatment comparisons. The objective functions for comparisons are based on the cost-time-logistics, robustness to assessment discrepancies and design efficiency constraints. A web based application is to be developed using the R package Shiny to help design sampling methodologies by comparing factors such as cost, precision, and efficiency.
