Minimal circular neighbor designsa are economical to minimize the bias due to neighbor effects for v odd. For v even, minimal circular partially balanced neighbor designs (MCPBNDs) are used. Generators to obtain MCPBNDs-II in equal, two and three different blocks sizes are available in literature for c = 0 and 1, where c is remainder if m is divided by 4, m = (v − 2)/2 and v is number of treatments. These designs have not been constructed for c = 2 and 3. To complete the construction of this class of neighbor designs, MCPBNDs-II are, therefore, constructed for the remaining cases. MCPNBDs-II are the neighbor designs in which 3v/2 pairs of different treatments do not appear as neighbors.
