design.rcbd {agricolae} R Documentation

## Randomized Complete Block Design

### Description

It generates Randomized Complete Block Design. "Random" uses the methods of number generation in R. The seed is by set.seed(seed, kinds).

### Usage

design.rcbd(trt, r, serie = 2, seed = 0, kinds = "Super-Duper", first=TRUE,
continue=FALSE,randomization=TRUE )


### Arguments

 trt Treatments r Replications or blocks serie number plot, 1: 11,12; 2: 101,102; 3: 1001,1002 seed seed kinds method for to randomize first TRUE or FALSE - randomize rep 1 continue TRUE or FALSE, continuous numbering of plot randomization TRUE or FALSE - randomize

### Details

kinds <- c("Wichmann-Hill", "Marsaglia-Multicarry", "Super-Duper", "Mersenne-Twister", "Knuth-TAOCP", "user-supplied", "Knuth-TAOCP-2002", "default" )

### Value

### Examples

library(agricolae)
# 5 treatments and 6 blocks
trt<-c("A","B","C","D","E")
outdesign <-design.rcbd(trt,6,serie=2,986,"Wichmann-Hill") # seed = 986
book <-outdesign$book # field book # write in hard disk # write.table(book,"rcbd.txt", row.names=FALSE, sep="\t") # file.show("rcbd.txt") # Plots in field model ZIGZAG fieldbook <- zigzag(outdesign) print(outdesign$sketch)
print(matrix(fieldbook[,1],byrow=TRUE,ncol=5))
# continuous numbering of plot
outdesign <-design.rcbd(trt,6,serie=0,continue=TRUE)
