Describe in Detail

Discuss how you would proceed with the analysis if data on one plot is missing in a Latin Square design.

Explanation

To analysis the data of a Latin square design having missing values, we first estimate the missing value by minimizing the error mean square and the rest missing values by guess estimate which is generally the mean of all available values. The estimated value of x is obtain by to minimize the error variance, differentiate the expression for it wi

Identify the above design. If the observation (*) in third row and fourth column is missing, how would you estimate the missing yield?

Explanation

This is a 4 x 4 Latin square design with one missing observation.

Estimation of the missing yield:

The observation in the (ith) 3rd row, (jth) 4th column is missing.

i. e.

m = number of rows or columns in the design (here 4 x 4. hence m = 4)

R = Sum of the known observations in the 3rd row, i

Describe in Detail

Define SBIBD. Show that for SBIBD, if the number of treatments is even then (r- λ) is a perfect square.

Explanation

Block design in combinatorial mathematics is a set with family of subsets (repeated subsets are allowed at times) whose members are picked to satisfy set of properties deemed useful for a particular application.

An arrangement of the υ treatments in b blocks of k plots each (k < υ) is known as BIBD if

Describe in Detail

Obtain an estimate of a missing observation in a Latin square design. How does the subsequent analysis differ from the usual case?

Explanation

Let us suppose that in Latin square, the observation occurring in the ith row and jth column and receiving the kth treatment is missing.

Let us assume that its value is x, i. e. = .

= total of the known observations in the ith row, i. e. the row containing

= total of known observ

Describe in Detail

Describe under which situations a Latin square design can be preferred to completely randomised design and randomised block design, What are the merits and demerits of LSD?

Explanation

(i) Latin square design compared to completely Randomized design:

In CRD, we allocate the treatments at random to the experimental units, without the grouping of the experimental field. In some cases, this design suffers because of not having more information like other advanced designs. Since in CRD randomisation is not restricted in any direct
