Examples

## Not run: 

library(agridat)
data(kempton.rowcol)
dat <- kempton.rowcol
dat <- transform(dat, rowf=factor(row), colf=factor(col))

libs(desplot)
desplot(dat, yield~col*row|rep,
        num=gen, out1=rep, # unknown aspect
        main="kempton.rowcol")


# Model with rep, row, col as random.  Kempton, page 62.
# Use "-1" so that the vcov matrix doesn't include intercept
libs(lme4)
m1 <- lmer(yield ~ -1 + gen + rep + (1|rep:rowf) + (1|rep:colf), data=dat)

# Variance components match Kempton.
print(m1, corr=FALSE)

# Standard error of difference for genotypes.  Kempton page 62, bottom.
