Efficient control-test designs for diallel cross experiments
Diallel cross experiments for control versus test comparisons among the lines
are studied under a completely randomized design model. A sufficient condition for designs
to be $A$- and $M V$-optimal in these experimental situations are derived and it is seen that the
class of Type-$S$ designs yield efficient designs to estimate control versus test comparisons.
Efficient designs with lower bound to the efficiencies are also tabulated within a practical
range of parameters. The issue of efficient blocking of diallel crosses is also discussed.
