# design.rcbd: Randomized Complete Block Design In agricolae: Statistical Procedures for Agricultural Research

## 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

 ```1 2``` ```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

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15``` ```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) head(outdesign\$book) ```
