EXST7015 Daily Design 7 Carefully read the description of the experiment below. Be prepared to answer the questions that follow the design description as a class quiz. Sweet potato (SP) is grown as dry season forage for sheep. In order to study the effect of the cutting schedule on the yield and quality of Sweet potato forage vines were subjected to four cutting regimes: pruning at 4, 6, 8 weeks interval and uncut plots (control plots). The experiment spanned a period of 216 days and was conducted on a field that had been left to fallow for a year after several years of cultivation to maize and cassava crops. A dual-purpose variety of sweet potato collected from the National Root Crops Research Institute (NRCRI) of Nigeria was used in this study. The vines were cut into 30 cm pieces with a minimum of 4 nodes. The plot size in this experiment was 4 x 6m. Plots were created in groups of 3 so each treatment was replicated three times. Each treatment was randomly assigned to one plot within each plot group.
