Dear Jerko,

The best form of MET model for analysis of means depends on the number of genotypes and number of environments.

Assuming numer of genotypes is much greater than number of environments,
and the G.E table is more than 50% full,

I would fit the models

yield !WT=wt ~ mu env !r env.gen
1 1 1
0 !S2==1.0
env.gen 2
env 0 CORUH 0.5
 e*v # where is is number of environments and v is a plausible genetic variance

yield !WT=wt ~ mu env !r xfa(env,1).gen
1 1 1
0 !S2==1.0
xfa(env,1).gen 2
xfa(env,1) 0 XFA1
e*p # where p is half of v estimated in PART 1
e*l # where l is SQRT of covariance from part 1


There is a draft discussion of these models at
if I've got the link right.
