    Question on Balanced Incomplete Block Design

    I'm currently doing a research assignment in my Experimental Design Analysis course and have chosen BIBD. Most of the information I require I found in my textbook/internet except for what areas is this method most commonly used in as well as limitations to the design. For the limitations, i would assume less accuracy than a full random block design but is their a more 'proper' way to describe this??
    I'm a newbie, so please be gentle

    If you cannot run every single treatment within each block you will you have to run just certain treatments within each block.
    It's preferable to run every treatment within each block, but cost or time
    may not allow it, so you do the best you can.
    Note that the total number of replications is less and so are the dfs for the chi-squares.
