The function computes the ecovalence (Wricke, 1965) for stability analysis.

ecovalence(.data, env, gen, rep, resp, verbose = TRUE)

Arguments

.data

The dataset containing the columns related to Environments, Genotypes, replication/block and response variable(s).

env

The name of the column that contains the levels of the environments.

gen

The name of the column that contains the levels of the genotypes.

rep

The name of the column that contains the levels of the replications/blocks.

resp

The response variable(s). To analyze multiple variables in a single procedure use, for example, resp = c(var1, var2, var3).

verbose

Logical argument. If verbose = FALSE the code will run silently.

Value

An object of class ecovalence containing the results for each variable used in the argument resp.
