M. H. P. Barbosa, Ferreira, A., Peixoto, L. A., Resende, M. D. V., Nascimento, M., and Silva, F. F., Selection of sugar cane families by using BLUP and multi-diverse analyses for planting in the Brazilian savannah, vol. 13, pp. 1619-1626, 2014.

This study evaluated different strategies to select sugar cane families and obtain clones adapted to the conditions of the Brazilian savannah. Specifically, 7 experiments were conducted, with 10 full sib families, and 2 witnesses in common to all experiments, in each experiment. The plants were grown in random blocks, with witnesses in common (incomplete blocks), and 6 repetitions of each experiment. The data were analyzed through the methodology of mixed patterns, in which the matrices of kinship between the families were identified by the method of restricted maximum likelihood.
