Multi-environment trial of sorghum, 6 environments

Description

Multi-environment trial of sorghum, 6 environments

Usage

data("omer.sorghum")

Format

A data frame with 432 observations on the following 4 variables.

env

environment

rep

replication

gen

genotype factor

yield

yield, kg/ha

Details

Trials were conducted in Sudan, 3 years at 2 locations, 4 reps in RCBD at each location. The year and location have been combined to form 6 environments. Only environments are given in the data, not the individual year and location.
