The course is designed to provide graduate students of plant breeding agronomy and related disciplines an understanding of the phenotypic plasticity of genotypes as they develop in different environments, and how this impact commercial crop production and plant improvement.

Students will learn the impact of environments and environmental stimuli on the estimates of agricultural and breeding value of crop varieties, the use of statistical and graphical techniques to analyze and deal with G x E, and to exploit clustering of environments in variety testing, selection, and commercial recommendation.
