The Response To Selection Of Different Procedures For The Analysis Of Early Generation Variety Trials, Brian R. Cullis, A. C. Gleeson, F. M. Thomson

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

A simulation study was conducted to determine the relative response to selection of a one-dimensional spatial analysis of field experiments (SAFE) specifically adapted for early generation trials. The primary purpose of the analysis in these trials is to obtain accurate estimates of genotypic effects of the unreplicated test lines by adjusting for local variation, using either the yields of all neighbouring plots or the yields of neighbouring plots of (replicated) check varieties. The response to selection of the SAFE analysis, relative to the use of unadjusted yields of test line plots, was consistently greater than the relative response to selection ...
