Split Plot Designs
Split plot experiments are the workhorse of statistical design. There is a saying that if the only tool you own is a hammer, then everything in the world looks like a nail. It might be fair to say that, from now on, almost every design that you see will be some sort of split plot.
A split plot design (or split unit design) is one in which there is more than one type of experimental unit. Although split unit is probably the more accurate term, this design also grew out of agriculture, and the historical term seems to be the more popular one.
