Problem 1E

An agricultural scientist tests six types of fertilizer, labeled A, B, C, D, E, and F, to determine whether any of them produces an increase in the yield of lima beans over that obtained with the current fertilizer. For fertilizer C, the increase in yield is statistically significant at the 0.05 level. For the other five, the increase is not statistically significant. The scientist concludes that the yield obtained with fertilizer C is greater than that of the current fertilizer. Explain why this conclusion is not justified.
