Cover for Introduction.

Field testing - trialling - of oil palm is subject to many factors, chief among them being the basic biological features of the crop (it is a long-lived perennial) and the traits to be assessed (mainly yield, thus mature palms need to be produced). Trialling is the next step after breeders have...

Cover for Best linear unbiased prediction of breeding value: univariate models with one random effect.

In this chapter, best linear unbiased prediction's (BLUP) theoretical background is briefly presented, considering a univariate animal model, and its application to several univariate models in genetic evaluation is illustrated. Constructing the mixed model equations, progeny (daughter) yield...

Cover for Best linear unbiased prediction of breeding value: models with random environmental effects.

This chapter deals with models that account for the two main types of environmental effects (common and permanent environmental effects) in genetic evaluations. The repeatability model is defined and illustrated, including the calculation of daughter yield deviations. A model with common...
