Plant Biology and Pest Control

This site presents the scientific method to explore and understand pest control in sweet basil.  Real field data is used to show results of the experiment and users are led though an investigation to determine which pest control is best.  Interestingly, the fresh weight yield of sweet basil was not affected by pest control measures and hence, no signficant differences were reported.  This is a good site to show how new and important knowledge can be obtained though the scientific method, even when data show no signficant differences.
