Efficient control-test designs for diallel cross experiments
by
Ashish Das
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.
