Obtaining new cultivars is one of the bases of human food supply. Such varieties are obtained through a dynamic process of several stages called plant breeding. Within this process, a crucial issue is the assessment of the interaction between genotypes and environments via multi environmental trials. The aim of the seminar will be to present an overview on genotype x environment interactions, how to assess evidence on that and show statistical models that are used to model such interactions. Some results from project INNOVAR related to new wheat varieties will be discussed.
