Multi-environment trial of 33 barley genotypes in 12 locations

Description

Multi-environment trial of 33 barley genotypes in 12 locations

Usage

data("lin.superiority")

Format

A data frame with 396 observations on the following 4 variables.

gen

genotype/cultivar

region

region

loc

location

yield

yield (kg/ha)

Details

Yield of six-row barley from the 1983 annual report of Eastern Cooperative Test in Canada.

The named cultivars Bruce, Conquest, Laurier, Leger are checks, while the other cultivars were tests.
