On-farm tests of technology are usually distinguished in the literature as either on-farm trials or farmers' tests. In on-farm trials, the researcher manages the trial in an effort to control variation. Examples include multilocational testing of advanced varieties or tests of new and promising intercropping combinations. In farmers' tests, tlie farmers manage all (or most) test operations. Even management may be a test factor, with the researcher simply monitoring how the test is executed by the farmer.
