Multi-environment trial of perennial ryegrass in France

Description

Plant strength of perennial ryegrass in France for 21 genotypes at 7 locations.

Format

A data frame with 147 observations on the following 3 variables.

gen

genotype, 21 levels

loc

location, 7 levels

strength

average plant strength * 100

Details

INRA conducted a breeding trial in western France with 21 genotypes at 7 locations. The observed data is 'strength' averaged over 7-10 plants per plot and three plots per location (after adjusting for blocking effects). Each plant was scored on a scale 0-9.

The original data had a value of 86.0 for genotype G1 at location L4–this was replaced by an additive estimated value of 361.2 as in Gower and Hand (1996).
