brandle.rape {agridat}R Documentation

Multi-environment trial of rape in Manitoba

Description

Rape seed yields for 5 genotypes, 3 years, 9 locations.

Format

A data frame with 135 observations on the following 4 variables.

gen

genotype

year

year, numeric

loc

location, 9 levels

yield

yield, kg/ha

Details

The yields are the mean of 4 reps.

Note, in table 2 of Brandle, the value of Triton in 1985 at Bagot is shown as 2355, but should be 2555 to match the means reported in the paper.

Examples

## Not run: 

library(agridat)
data(brandle.rape)
dat <- brandle.rape

libs(lattice)
dotplot(gen~yield|loc, dat, group=year, auto.key=list(columns=3),
        main="brandle.rape, yields per location", ylab="Genotype")

# Matches table 4 of Brandle
# round(tapply(dat$yield, dat$gen, mean),0)

# Brandle reports variance components:
# sigma^2_gl: 9369  gy: 14027 g: 72632 resid: 150000
# Brandle analyzed rep-level data, so the residual variance is different.
# The other components are matched by the following analysis.
