Advances in Agricultural Statistics
Statisticians who work as consultants and researchers in Agriculture Experimental Station environments enable land grant institutions to perform their agricultural research missions more effectively and efficiently; however, most stations have only one or two professional statisticians who cannot offer expertise in every area of statistics. With the increased availability of high speed computers, many new computation-intensive statistical methods and software have become available. This means that it is more challenging, but also more critical, for academic, government, and industry statisticians to work together to stay abreast of the latest statistical advances so that they can develop enhanced or new methodologies. This multi-state committee brings together statisticians who work in related areas at many stations. The resulting exchange of knowledge helps statisticians provide more effective and timely assistance to researchers in their respective states and institutions, determine the best solutions to common statistical problems, and guide future statistical research and software creation.
