There exists a set of designs which form a subclass of semi-Latin rectangles. These designs, besides being semi-Latin rectangles, exhibit an additional property of balance; where no two distinct pairs of symbols (treatments) differ in their concurrences, that is, each pair of distinct treatments concur a constant number of times in the design. Such a design exists for a limited set of parameter combinations. We designate it a balanced semi-Latin rectangle (BSLR) and give some properties, and necessary conditions for its existence. Furthermore, algorithms for constructing the design for experimental situations where there are two treatments in each row-column intersection (block) are also given.
