Designs
The theory of design of experiments cameinto being largely through the work of R.A.Fisher and F.Yates in the early 1930's.They were motivated by questions of design of field experiments in agriculture. Theapplicability of this theory is now verywidespread, much of the terminology still bearsthe stamp of its origins.
 
 
Designs
 
Consider an agricultural experiment. Suppose it isdesired to compare the yield of 
v
different varieties of grain.It is quite possible that there would be an interactionbetween the environment (type of soil, rainfall, drainage,etc.) and the variety of grain which would alter the yields.So,
b
blocks (sets of experimental plots) are chosen inwhich the environment is fairly consistent throughout theblock. In other types of experiments, in which theenvironment might not be a factor, blocks could bedistinguished as plots which receive a particular treatment(say, are given a particular type of fertilizer). In this way,the classification of the experimental plots into blocks andvarieties can be used whenever there are two factors whichmay influence yield.
