This screen manages your manure analysis data. Running averages by season are kept for each manure source. Averages are currently calculated individually for N, P2O5, K2O, and S for each year/season combination. The calculation throws out up to two sample values if they are more than 2 standard deviations from the mean. This means that the N value for a sample may be used but the P2O5 value for the same sample may be thrown out.


The controls

Filter by source combo box will filter the displayed data showing samples and averages for the selected source.

Filter by season check boxes will filter the displayed data showing samples and averages for the selected seasons.
