Mixed model with spatial variance–covariance structure for accommodating of local stationary trend and its influence on multi-environmental crop variety trial assessment

The most common procedure for analyzing multi-environmental trials is based on the assumption that the residual error variance is homogenous across all locations considered. However, this may often be unrealistic, and therefore limit the accuracy of variety evaluation or the reliability of variety r...
