## Modified AMMI Stability Index

### Description

MASI.AMMI computes the Modified AMMI Stability Index (MASI) (Ajay et al. 2018) from a modified formula of AMMI Stability Index (ASI) (Jambhulkar et al. 2014; Jambhulkar et al. 2015; Jambhulkar et al. 2017). Unlike ASI, MASI calculates stability value considering all significant interaction principal components (IPCs) in the AMMI model. Using MASI, the Simultaneous Selection Index for Yield and Stability (SSI) is also calculated according to the argument ssi.method.

### Usage

MASI.AMMI(model, n, alpha = 0.05, ssi.method = c("farshadfar", "rao"), a = 1)


### Arguments

 model The AMMI model (An object of class AMMI generated by AMMI). n The number of principal components to be considered for computation. The default value is the number of significant IPCs. alpha Type I error probability (Significance level) to be considered to identify the number of significant IPCs. ssi.method The method for the computation of simultaneous selection index. Either "farshadfar" or "rao" (See SSI). a The ratio of the weights given to the stability components for computation of SSI when method = "rao" (See SSI).

### Details

The Modified AMMI Stability Index ($$MASI$$) (Ajay et al. 2018) is computed as follows:

$MASI = \sqrt{ \sum_{n=1}^{N'} PC_{n}^{2} \times \theta_{n}^{2}}$

Where, $$PC_{n}$$ are the scores of $$n$$th IPC; and $$\theta_{n}$$ is the percentage sum of squares explained by the $$n$$th principal component interaction effect.

### Value

A data frame with the following columns:

 MASI The MASI values. SSI The computed values of simultaneous selection index for yield and stability. rMASI The ranks of MASI values. rY The ranks of the mean yield of genotypes. means The mean yield of the genotypes.

The names of the genotypes are indicated as the row names of the data frame.

### Examples

library(agricolae)
data(plrv)

# AMMI model
model <- with(plrv, AMMI(Locality, Genotype, Rep, Yield, console = FALSE))

# ANOVA
model$ANOVA # IPC F test model$analysis

# Mean yield and IPC scores
model$biplot # G*E matrix (deviations from mean) array(model$genXenv, dim(model$genXenv), dimnames(model$genXenv))

# With default n (N') and default ssi.method (farshadfar)
MASI.AMMI(model)

# With n = 4 and default ssi.method (farshadfar)
MASI.AMMI(model, n = 4)

# With default n (N') and ssi.method = "rao"
MASI.AMMI(model, ssi.method = "rao")

# Changing the ratio of weights for Rao's SSI
MASI.AMMI(model, ssi.method = "rao", a = 0.43)

# ASI.AMMI same as MASI.AMMI with n = 2

a <- ASI.AMMI(model)
b <- MASI.AMMI(model, n = 2)

identical(a$ASI, b$MASI)
