Summary: The performance of a treatment is affected by the treatments applied to its adjacent plots, especially in the experiments of agriculture, horticulture, forestry, serology and industry. Neighbor designs ensure that treatment comparisons are least affected by neighbor effects, therefore, this is a rich field of investigation in statistics and in combinatorics. In this article, several series of neighbor balanced designs are considered in circular blocks of six units.
