The application of the split-plot design in the analysis of experimental rabbit feeds data

D Pwasong, D.N Choji


The Split-plot design model was used to analyze rabbit feeds data obtained from the Department of Agricultural Science, Federal College of Education Pankshin in order to determine whether there is significant variation in the categories of feeds given. The result shows that there was no significant effect in the different categories of feed used in feeding the rabbits. A significant difference was observed between the quantity of feeds given to the rabbits and the feed conversion efficiency on the rabbits. It determined that there was no significant interaction between factor A (feeds) and factor B (application method) of the analysis.
