Description This work is aimed to evaluate different statistical analysis with a randomized complete block design for paired-plot studies of herbicide selectivity in sugarcane experiments. Two  procedures were considered: i) the construction of a t-test to assess the hypothesis of the paired-plot mean  difference to be zero in each treatment; or ii) the use  of an analysis of variance where the treated and paired  plots were considered in a split-plot model and the interaction is sliced  by treatment. By simulation with normal  bivariate  distributions, with  uniform (zero, 0.11, 0.33, 0.44, 0.67 or 0.89)  or heterogeneous correlations, the two procedures showed similar performance. The power of the tests increases as the correlation of paired-plot increases.
