Additive Main Effects and Multiplicative Interaction (AMMI) Analysis for Yield of Cassava in Nigeria

Abstract:
The problem of genotype-by-environment (G x E) interactions that often complicates the interpretation of multilocational trial analysis making the prediction of genotype performance difficult can be eased with the adoption of the Additive Main Effects and Multiplicative Interaction (AMMI) model analysis. The AMMI model was used in this study to evaluate 20 broad based cassava genotypes established in eight environments in Nigeria in order to; identify stable and adaptable genotypes, determine the magnitude of G x E interaction and identify factors contributing to the G x E interaction pattern. Analysis of variance showed that the effects of environments, genotypes and G x E were highly significant (p< 0.001) for storage root yield. AMMI estimates ranked genotypes differently from unadjusted means producing sharper and more stratified rankings. Genotypes 4(2)1425 and 91/02324 was found to be stable and adaptable, 96/0326 was found to be unstable but high yielding, while 96/0590 was highly stable but low yielding. Genotypes 96/0529 and 96/0860 were specifically adapted to Zaria (Northern guinea savanna) and 96/0191 was adapted to Ibadan (forest savanna transition zone). High variation in soil moisture availability was identified as a major causal factor of the interaction observed. Ibadan and Mokwa were relatively stable environments but Mallamadori was highly unstable. Mokwa been highly stable could be considered as a good site for selection broad based improved cassava genotypes.
