Use of the AMMI model to analyse cultivar-environment interaction in cotton under irrigation in South Africa

  title={Use of the AMMI model to analyse cultivar-environment interaction in cotton under irrigation in South Africa},
  author={Mari{\"e}tte Pretorius and James Allemann},
Upland cotton (Gossypiumhirsutum L.) is considered to be the most important textile fiber crop in the world. Unpredictable weather patterns caused a need for the identification of stable genotypes that have specific adaptation to specific environments. The objective of this study was to evaluate yield performance of different cotton cultivars under irrigation in South Africa by using the AMMI model. Five genotypes were evaluated over three seasons (2003 to 2006) at six locations. The additive… Expand

Stability and adaptability of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) genotypes based on AMMI analysis
The graphic analysis of additive main effect and multiplicative interaction (AMMI) were used to understand the G x E interaction pattern and to study the stability and adaptability of seed cotton yield of a new germplasm in Mozambique and revealed that genotypes FK 37, BA 919 and Flash were the most adaptable, while BA 2018 and BA 320 were themost stable across the variation of environments.

Assessment of G×E interaction for fibre quality traits in recombinant inbred lines of cotton
The quality of textile processing depends on the several cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fibre quality traits, such as micronaire value, fibre length, and fibre strength. The objective of thisExpand
Applications of Crop Modeling in Cotton Production
Cotton growth models are being generally used by cotton scientists as well as policy makers across globe as an important and effective research tool. Cotton simulation models have been applied duringExpand


Genotype x Environment Interaction and Yield-Stability Analyses of Rice Grown in Tropical Inland Swamp
Correlation of PC scores with environmental and agronomic variables identified total rainfall up to the reproductive stage, variation in tillering ability and plant height as the most important factors underlying the GxE interaction. Expand
Additive main effects and multiplicative interactions (AMMI) analysis of dry leaf yield in tobacco hybrids across environments
Additive main effects and multiplicative interactions (AMMI) analysis indicated that the dry leaf yield of genotypes were under the major environmental effects of genotype by environmental interactions. Expand
Stability analysis of food barley genotypes in northern Ethiopia
The additive main effects and multiplicative interaction analysis of grain yield showed that environment, and GEI were highly significant (P<0.01), whereas variations due to genotypes were not significant, and large sum of squares indicated that the environments were diverse; causing most of the variation in grain yield.

The success of the AMMI model in predicting lucerne yields for cultivars with differing dormancy characteristics
Expected trends in results from the yield trials were not obvious using the additive main effects model (ANOVA), while the application of the AMMI model resulted in rankings of cultivars in different environments which could readily be explained by the breeding history and dormancy of the cultivars.

Additive mean effects and multiplicative interaction analysis of maize yield trials in South Africa
High influence of the environment on the yield performance of maize hybrids in both regions demonstrated and Caracal and to lesser extend Saffier were the best adapted hybrids for low potential environments in both the eastern and western regions. Expand
Genotype x environment interaction for durum wheat grain yield and selection for drought tolerance in irrigated and droughted environments in Iran
The identification of the durum genotypes (G12, G11, and G4) with high yield and stability performance under unpredictable environments and high tolerance to drought stress conditions can help breeding programs and eventually contribute to increasing and sustainability of durum production in the unpredictable conditions of Iran.

AMMI analysis of potato cultivar yield trials
The AMMI model was found to be suitable for determining the reaction of cultivars/lines in an environment and the usefulness of the technique improves with a graphical presentation of the results to display the stability of a genotype in different environments. Expand
Genotype × environment interaction of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in South Africa: II. Stability analysis of yield performance
Thirteen winter and intermediate type bread wheat cultivars were evaluated for yield stability under dryland conditions over a four year period from 1991 to 1994 and over a total of 120 environmentsExpand
Comparison of biometrical methods to describe yield stability in field pea (Pisum sativum L.) under south eastern Ethiopian conditions
It is suggested that the use of appropriate biometrics techniques is necessary for identifying the most adapted, responsive and stable genotypes in the final phases of the plant breeding program, where the high cost and the time spent in assays are powerful justifications to search for improved methods.
