Keywords: Balanced incomplete block design; variance balanced; efficiency balanced design; universally optimal design; 3 n-factorial design ABSTRACT A method of constructing equireplicate Variance Balanced (VB) and Efficiency Balanced (EB) design with unequal block sizes is proposed using 3 n-symmetrical factorial design with illustration. The method suggested here is based on merging some of the treatment combinations and deleting control and some other unimportant treatment combinations in 3
