Precision phenotyping is the evaluation of a genotype’s expression in a given environment with minimum influence of experimental error. This chapter presents the basic principles of experimental designs and lists commonly used experimental designs for phenotyping crop genotypes. Experimental designs include unreplicated designs, incomplete block designs, and variable replication block designs which can also be generated using some selected software. This chapter illustrates some of such experimental designs and key directives of the software which can be used to generate and analyze these designs have also been included.
