Inter-block information: to recover or not to recover it?
Blocked designs are common in plant breeding field trials. Depending on the precision of variance estimates, recovery of inter-block information via random block effects may be worthwhile. A challenge in practice is to decide when recovery of information should be pursued. To investigate this question, a series of sugar beet trials laid out as α-designs were analysed assuming fixed or random block effects. Additionally, small trials laid out as α-designs or partially replicated...[Show more]
