A modified augmented design for early selection stages in sugarcane and its limitation

To assess the comparative utility and efficiency of augmented randomised block design with modified augmented randomised block design (MAD), trials were conducted at two locations with 63 and 66 sugarcane clones. The study indicated that the augmented design showed low error mean squares in all the cases compared to MAD. When simulated data with more number of clones were studied, MAD is found to be better for those trials which consist of more number of clones (above 100) and with a minimum of four standards in the early selection stages of sugarcane.
