Best linear unbiased prediction of single crosses is described for a model that is somewhat more complete than those previously published. The method applies to unequal subclass numbers with unequal means of the observations. The lines are assumed to be a random sample from some population. Also, methods for unbiased estimation of the variances and covariances from such data are presented.
