DBC {AgroR} R Documentation

## Analysis: Randomized block design

### Description

This is a function of the AgroR package for statistical analysis of experiments conducted in a randomized block and balanced design with a factor considering the fixed model.

### Usage

```DBC(
trat,
block,
response,
norm = "sw",
homog = "bt",
mcomp = "tukey",
quali = TRUE,
alpha.f = 0.05,
alpha.t = 0.05,
transf = 1,
test = "parametric",
grau = 1,
geom = "bar",
theme = theme_classic(),
sup = NA,
CV = TRUE,
ylab = "response",
xlab = "",
textsize = 12,
fill = "lightblue",
angle = 0,
family = "sans",
dec = 3,
errorbar = TRUE,
posi = "top",
point = "mean_sd",
angle.label = 0
)
```

### Arguments

 `trat` Numerical or complex vector with treatments `block` Numerical or complex vector with blocks `response` Numerical vector containing the response of the experiment. `norm` Error normality test (default is Shapiro-Wilk) `homog` Homogeneity test of variances (default is Bartlett) `mcomp` Multiple comparison test (Tukey (default), LSD, Scott-Knott and Duncan) `quali` Defines whether the factor is quantitative or qualitative (default is qualitative) `alpha.f` Level of significance of the F test (default is 0.05) `alpha.t` Significance level of the multiple comparison test (default is 0.05) `transf` Applies data transformation (default is 1; for log consider 0) `test` "parametric" - Parametric test or "noparametric" - non-parametric test `grau` Degree of polynomial in case of quantitative factor (default is 1) `geom` graph type (columns, boxes or segments) `theme` ggplot2 theme (default is theme_classic()) `sup` Number of units above the standard deviation or average bar on the graph `CV` Plotting the coefficient of variation and p-value of Anova (default is TRUE) `ylab` Variable response name (Accepts the expression() function) `xlab` Treatments name (Accepts the expression() function) `textsize` Font size `fill` Defines chart color (to generate different colors for different treatments, define fill = "trat") `angle` x-axis scale text rotation `family` Font family `dec` Number of cells `addmean` Plot the average value on the graph (default is TRUE) `errorbar` Plot the standard deviation bar on the graph (In the case of a segment and column graph) - default is TRUE `posi` Legend position `point` Defines whether to plot mean ("mean"), mean with standard deviation ("mean_sd" - default) or mean with standard error (default - "mean_se"). `angle.label` label angle

### Value

The table of analysis of variance, the test of normality of errors (Shapiro-Wilk, Lilliefors, Anderson-Darling, Cramer-von Mises, Pearson and Shapiro-Francia), the test of homogeneity of variances (Bartlett or Levene), the test of independence of Durbin-Watson errors, the test of multiple comparisons (Tukey, LSD, Scott-Knott or Duncan) or adjustment of regression models up to grade 3 polynomial, in the case of quantitative treatments. Non-parametric analysis can be used by the Friedman test. The column, segment or box chart for qualitative treatments is also returned. The function also returns a standardized residual plot.

### Note

The ordering of the graph is according to the sequence in which the factor levels are arranged in the data sheet. The bars of the column and segment graphs are standard deviation.

CV and p-value of the graph indicate coefficient of variation and p-value of the F test of the analysis of variance.

In the final output when transformation (transf argument) is different from 1, the columns resp and respo in the mean test are returned, indicating transformed and non-transformed mean, respectively.
