A Method of Constructing Incomplete Split-Plot Designs Supplemented by Control Treatments and Their Analysis

We give a method of constructing incomplete split-plot designs supplemented by control treatments, using a modified Kronecker product of two resolvable designs. We use a resolvable design and a square lattice design for test treatments of wholeplots and subplots, respectively. We give the stratum efficiency factors for such incomplete split-plot designs, which have the general balance property.
