BC Seed Trials Replicated Leek Variety Trials 2017-2018 Lyon, Alexandra; Thoreau, Chris
This dataset comprises data from two years of replicated leek variety trials carried out at the UBC Farm. Production and quality data were collected as part of the BC Seed Trials, a farmer-participatory variety trialing project that sought to identify vegetable varieties with strong performance for both fresh market sales and seed production in British Columbia. Trials used the “mother-baby” design; the UBC Farm served as a "mother" site that conducted replicated trials, and several on-farm “baby” sites carried out unreplicated trials. While many leek varieties were trialed in both years, some were trialed in only one year. The set of traits evaluated also varied somewhat between years. This variability resulted in substantial missing data, but the dataset can be useful with appropriate filtering for varieties and traits of interest. The metadata tab summarizes the attributes rated per year, defines rating scales, and indicates when rating scales were converted for consistency.
