Augmented Designs Mike Popelka & Jason Morales

What is an augmented design? A replicated check experiment augmented by unreplicated entries. Step 1: Start with a field subdivided into plots

What is an augmented design? A replicated check experiment augmented by unreplicated entries. Step 2: Divide plots into blocks

What is an augmented design? A replicated check experiment augmented by unreplicated entries. Step 3: Randomly place checks in each block – We now have 6 replicates of a randomized complete block design (RCBD). C1

What is an augmented design? A replicated check experiment augmented by unreplicated entries. Step 4: Fill in empty plots with unique entries (genotypes). C11 25 C110 3 6 11 C131 20 C1 21C136 4 C127 5 C115 1914 33 1826 30 C1 9 16C1 24 32C1 17 45 C1 342 23 8C112 7 C1 28 C1 2229 C1 13C1

Purpose of Augmented Designs Why use an augmented design? – Cost effective – Limited seed quantities or resources – Increase efficiency of genetic gains Goal is to predict the true value of the genotype by adjusting for spatial effects. Spatial effects can include soil fertility, field gradients, physical soil properties, management practices, biological competition.

BLUPs Best linear unbiased predictors Purpose is to estimate the random effects and provide an adjusted dependent variable. In augmented designs, the random effects are usually related to spatial correction – Ex: yield = µ + entry(block) + check Entry is nested within block and is treated as a random effect Check is treated as a fixed effect and is used to model and then remove field effects.

Modeling Spatial Effects Model 1: See paper, PROC MIXED for Recovering Both Interblocking and Intervariety Information Yield = µ + treatn + rep + block(rep) + treat*new + Ɛ Treatn (fixed) = Individual checks, entries bulked into one treatment – i.e. check1, check2, check 3, all non-check entries Treat*new (random) = New entries (individually)

Modeling Spatial Effects Yield = µ + treatn + rep + block(rep) + treat*new + Ɛ Rep and block(rep) are random effects C7C93C105C8 2 C7 6 1C10C94 C10 Rep 1 Rep 2Rep 3 Block 1 Block 2 Block 3Block 4 Block 5 Block 6

Modeling Spatial Effects Model 2: See paper, Other Augmented Designs Grain weight = µ + W F + treatn + W R + treat*new – W F = Orthogonal polynomials treated as fixed – W R = Orthogonal polynomials treated as random

Orthogonal Polynomials Orthogonal polynomials are used to detect effects that fit the given polynomial structure. Final estimates are corrected using the covariance of the plot with the effect of the orthogonal polynomial. GLM select is used to identify which orthogonal polynomials are significant.
