Crop Variety Trials: Data Management and Analysis by Weikai Yan

By Weikai Yan

Variety trials are an important step in crop breeding and creation. those trials are an important funding in time and assets and tell a number of judgements from cultivar improvement to end-use.  Crop sort Trials: equipment and Analysis is a realistic quantity that gives worthy theoretical foundations in addition to a advisor to step by step implementation of potent trial tools and research in selecting the easiest types and cultivars.

Crop sort Trials is divided into sections. the 1st part offers the reader with a valid theoretical framework of sort review and trial research. Chapters offer insights into the theories of quantitative genetics and rules of examining facts. the second one element of the publication offers the reader with a realistic step by step advisor to effectively interpreting crop kind trial facts. mixed those sections give you the reader with fuller figuring out of the character of sort trials, their pursuits, and effortless database and statistical instruments that might let them to provide actual research of data.

Sample text

Note that data from a single trial may not be necessarily useful even if its data quality is judged as good by CV and H. The usefulness of a trial is more determined by its relevance to the target region, which can be assessed only by cross-trial data analysis (see Chapter 8 for an example). 1 Multilocation data from a single year Single-year variety trial data refer to data obtained from multilocation variety trials conducted in a single year. Since multiple traits are usually measured at each location, a single-year variety trial dataset is a genotype–location–trait three-way dataset.

So, conclusions from multitrait analysis can override those from single-trait analysis. When key traits are negatively correlated, as is usually the case, a genotype with the highest level for one trait may not necessarily be the most desirable cultivar. Therefore, although high accuracies in assessing individual traits are desirable, excessive accuracies on single traits does not necessarily lead to greater breeding progress. , single-trial data, singleyear data, and multiple-year data, but the analysis at the single-year level is more important for two considerations.
