Abstract

Pioneer Hi-Bred annually tests more than one hundred thousand new varieties of corn hybrids. Experimental designs used for these tests include CRD, RCB, nested and split-plot. A Six Sigma project at Pioneer recommended testing the use of incomplete-block (IB) designs. In 2001 some experiments were structured as row-column IE designs. This talk will discuss the experience of implementing and analyzing the row-column designs, summaries of the results, and plans for future experiments.
