A comparison of experimental designs for selection in breeding trials with nested treatment structure

Piepho, H.P.; Williams, Emlyn


Plant breeders frequently evaluate large numbers of entries in field trials for selection. Generally, the tested entries are related by pedigree. The simplest case is a nested treatment structure, where entries fall into groups or families such that entries within groups are more closely related than between groups. We found that some plant breeders prefer to plant close relatives next to each other in the field. This contrasts with common experimental designs such as the α-design, where...[Show more]
