Multi-environment trial of maize

Description

Multi-environment trial of maize with 3 reps.

Usage

data("dasilva.maize")

Format

A data frame with 1485 observations on the following 4 variables.

env

environment

rep

replicate block, 3 per env

gen

genotype

yield

yield (tons/hectare)

Details

Each location had 3 blocks. Block numbers are unique across environments.

NOTE! The environment codes in the supplemental data file of da Silva 2015 do not quite match the environment codes of the paper, but are mostly off by 1.

DaSilva Table 1 has a footnote "Machado et al 2007". This reference appears to be:

Machado et al. Estabilidade de producao de hibridos simples e duplos de milhooriundos de um mesmo conjunto genico. Bragantia, 67, no 3. www.scielo.br/pdf/brag/v67n3/a10v67n3.pdf

In DaSilva Table 1, the mean of E1 is 10.803. This appears to be a copy of the mean from row 1 of Table 1 in Machado. Using the supplemental data from this paper, the correct mean is 8.685448.
