## 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

 `parameters` Design parameters `sketch` Design sketch `book` Fieldbook

### 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)
