yes. simply have to fit the following model


I believe. This includes plot effects which are correlated. It is a simple
example similar to the one I presented in Bribie with 2 vines per plot, in
which you want to get





Within Plots

fitting smaple within plot data

We're looking at some leaf growth data with multiple measurements
(nominally 10 PLANTS) per PLOT. The plots have a spatial structure (ROW x
COL) in the field, but the plants are random within plots and so do not
relate to each other in any structure. I'm using ASREML-R.

While I have simply calculated sample means per plot and then done used a
standard ar1 x ar1 R structure, I'm wondering if there is a way to do this
using the original data, and making use of any sample variance information
(or at least saving me the trouble of calculating the means)?

Consider the data to have the following FACTORS (num levels) with
GENOTYPEs as random and leaflength as the variate....

PLOT (400) GENOTYPE (200) REPLICATE (2) ROW (20) COL (20) PLANT (10)
