Minimum detectable effect size for main outcomes (accounting for sample
design and clustering)
The main outcome of this study is horticultural sales. The average of horticultural sale in Zambia is estimated to be 1,300 Zambian kwacha and the standard deviation is 2,600 kwacha. The percentage is estimated to be 30% per year. Alpha is set to be 0.05, Beta 0.2 and Power 0.8. The minimum detectable effect size for main outcomes is 698 for each treatment and control group. This study holds two types of treatments and the minimum detectable effect size is estimated to be 2,094 and our sample size of 1,773 exceeds the minimum.
