Varietal selection for perennial crops where data relate to multiple harvests from a series of field trials

  title={Varietal selection for perennial crops where data relate to multiple harvests from a series of field trials},
  author={Alison Barbara Smith and J. K. Stringer and Xianming Wei and Brian R. Cullis},
Varietal selection for yield from a series of multi-environment trials can be regarded as a multi-trait selection problem in which the yields in different environments are synonymous with traits. As such an analysis of the data combined across environments should be conducted in order to form an index for selection. Analytical methods that include appropriate models for both the genetic variance structure (that is, the variances and covariances of genotype effects from different environments… CONTINUE READING
