Replication is an independent repetition of the basic experiment.
Each treatment is applied independently to at least two experimental units.
The reasons for replicating an experiment:

  • It demonstrates that the results are reproducible
  • It insures against aberrant results due to accidents
  • It allows to estimate experimental error variance
  • It increases the precision of the estimates of the means
