Augmented partial diallel cross plans involving two sets of parental lines

Published on

Augmented Partial Diallel Cross (APDC) plans are suitable
for situations in which resources are limited where a
complete diallel is not feasible, but some lines are believed
to be superior and are therefore of prime interest. It is
desirable to have these primary lines represent a high
proportion of crosses and hence they are crossed with
every other lines, but a partial diallel system is used for
lines of secondary interest. Here, some classes of APDC
plans have been obtained using association schemes of
Partially Balanced Incomplete Block (PBIB) designs.
Variances pertaining to different groups of interline
comparisons have been computed and a list consisting of
parameters of plans for useful range has been prepared.

Keywords: Association schemes, complete diallel cross, general combining ability, partially balanced incomplete block designs, partial diallel cross
