Abstract

The robustness of predicting selection response from BLUP using R = irAAaA was measured as the difference in response determined from a simulation model when variations in accuracy occur. Selection response was overestimated by 25% , 11 % and 2% when average accuracies (r) were 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5 with accuracy variation sampled using a variance of 0.1252. When accuracies were sampled over a uniform distribution with ranges 0 to 0.6, 0 to 0.8 and 0 to 1 overestimates were 64%, 25% and 4% .
