This paper addresses the problem of estimating the ratio of the means of independent normal variables in agricultural research. The first part of the research examines the distributional properties of the ratio of independent normal variables, both theoretically and using simulation. The second part of the research evaluates the relative merits of two common estimators of the ratio of the means of independent normal variables in agricultural research, an arithmetic average and a weighted… CONTINUE READING
