Description: One of the principles of experimental design is that replicates be relatively homogeneous. Thus, in forest research a replicate is often assigned to a single crew for planting in a single day on a uniform site. When treatments are numerous, a large area is required per replication, and homogeneity of site is difficult to achieve. In this situation, crop scientists (LeClerg et al. 1962) frequently divide the replicate into sub-blocks. The most used of the incomplete block designs are the lattices. Another type of incomplete block designs, the compact family block (Hutchinson and Panse 1937; Federer 1955) - essentially a split-plot design with genetic rather than cultural whole plots - has also been advocated for certain genetic materials.
