The Section is headed by Dr.P.Murali, Senior Scientist (Agri.Economist)
♥ The Statistics section was established in 1976 to cater to the needs of scientists in analyzing their experimental data, and in laying out field experiments based on statistical principles.
♥ The section has undertaken periodical studies in refinement of experimental techniques for sugarcane field trials. The section is also maintaining computer based databases of sugarcane genetic resources and an application software “GRINS” (Genetic Resource Information System) was developed for the management of these databases. Core collections of S. officinarum and S. spontaneum germplasm using various measures of diversity were also developed by the section.
♥ The Section also caters to the needs of scientists by developing computer programs for need-based statistical analysis supplemented by statistical packages like SPSS and SYSTAT and SAS for routine data analysis. Support to the Administrative section is provided by developing computer programs for PAYROLL, WAGE BILL and related applications.
