each observation with p traits measured in each environment is normally distributed. For r environments, the Classification methods are used in genetic resource conservation vector of each observation has dimensions 1 rp, where and plant breeding. The two-stage Ward-Modified Location Model (Ward-MLM) clustering strategy defines initial groups by the Ward rp trait–environment combinations (variables). method and the MLM is then used to improve those groups.
