Optimality of orthogonally blocked diallels with specific combining abilities

Optimality of orthogonally blocked complete diallel crosses for estimating general combining abilities is investigated when the model also includes specific combining abilities. It is proved that these designs remain optimal even in the presence of specific combining abilities. Three new series of orthogonally blocked designs are also reported.
