Thanks for agreeing to come onboard this project. As I mentioned to you, I made
a hybrid between wheat and barley using a special procedure. I’m calling this hybrid
Warley1. Since then I have been able to increase the diversity to 10 different genetic
lines and multiply enough seeds for testing.
I believe Warley has potential to become a major staple food. It has substantial yield
compared to current commercial wheat varieties. It’s possible that it can replace wheat
as the staple food! I conducted the trials at 3 locations testing 10 Warley testing lines.
I have yield measured in tonnes per hectare in the attached file. I want you to analyse
this data to find out the best Warley lines.
I also need to start planting for my next experiment so could you generate an experimental
design for the next one? The layout for the next experiment is the same as this
one, i.e. locations are Narrbari, Northstar and Horsham and I have a land with plots
laid out in a rectangular array of 5×4, 5×8 and 10×10 available. I want to test the top
two lines from this data in the next experiment and also I will have 3 additional new
lines. I should have enough seed to sow 40 plots for each lines.
