Abstract: A method of construction of mating designs for partial triallel cross for p>3 lines is proposed by using mutually orthogonal Latin squares of order p, where p is a prime or power of a prime. The designs are found to be optimal for estimating elementary contrasts of first and second kind of general effects. A method of analysis of these mating designs is also shown by numerical example.
