Spatially-Balanced Complete Block designs for field experiments

  title={Spatially-Balanced Complete Block designs for field experiments},
  author={Harold van Es and Carla P. Gomes and Meinolf Sellmann and Cindy van Es},
Spatial heterogeneity in fields may affect the outcome of experiments. The conventional randomized allocation of treatments to plots may cause bias and variable precision in the presence of trends (including periodicity) and spatial autocorrelation. Agricultural scientists appear to mostly use conventional experimental designs that are susceptible to adverse affects from field variability. The objectives of this research were to (i) quantify the use of different experimental designs in… CONTINUE READING
