- ... Four incomplete block designs, the lattice square, balanced lattice, lattice, and triple lattice, were applied to corn uniformity trial data assuming 25, 49, 81, and 121 varieties in plots 2 by 5, 4 by 5, and 2 by 10 hills in size. The average of all designs computed without the recovery of inter-block information showed a gain of 25% in favor of the incomplete block designs over the randomized co ...
