Bemerkung :

Inhalte, Kompetenzen

Inhalte:

In the beginning of the course, students are introduced to the basic concepts of statistics like frequency distributions, the normal distribution and hypothesis testing. They are also introduced to software packages like SAS, that are used for the practical exercises.

Regression and correlation analysis are then introduced. Different experimental designs like randomized block, latin square, and split plot are described and analyzed by one-way analysis of variance or as factorial experiments. Generalized Linear Models will be used and multivariate data will by analyzed by cluster and principal component methods.

A large amount of examples and exercises constitute an important aspect of the course, enabling the students to understand and assimilate the theoretical content. Practical analyses of example data sets also provide the students with the required experience and skills for future statistical tasks in the context of Mastertheses.

 

Kompetenzen:

The aim of the course is to familiarize students with the basic concepts of statistics and their application in agricultural science. The second goal is to learn the use of software packages like SAS.

Contents:
The marketing of seed is a hitherto largely unexplored field of research. In the research-
oriented master's degree program, the students will learn the basics of the business-
to-business marketing (positioning, market segmentation, competitive strategies,
international marketing, marketing tools, sales management) and its application to the
purchasing behavior of farmers. Since the seed market is a socially critical debated
topic, fundamentals of public relations and the corporate social responsibility are taught.
In a project report in the second part of the seminar, students will elaborate their own
studies on current aspects of the seed marketing and present it in a presentation.

Learning outcome, core skills:
Students can apply the tools of marketing to the specifics of the researchintensive
seed market. They will be able to apply modern research methods in order to collect
information on agricultural procurement processes and public settings. On this basis
they can develop targeted strategies for national and international markets. They know
customized concepts and methods of distribution.

Examination requirements:
Students show in the exam that they know the basics of seed marketing. In a scientific
presentation they can demonstrate that they can apply this knowledge to current
problems of the subject and are able to transfer their knowledge.



Leistungsnachweis:

Written exam (60 minutes, 50%) and presentation (about 30 minutes,
