FieldSimR: Simulation of Plot-Level Data in Plant Breeding Field Trials

Simulates plot-level data in plant breeding field trials for multiple traits in multiple environments. Its core function simulates spatially correlated plot-level errors across correlated traits using bivariate interpolation or a two-dimensional autoregressive process of order one (AR1:AR1). 'FieldSimR' then combines this spatial error with random measurement error at a user-defined ratio. The simulated plot-level errors can be combined with genetic values (e.g. true, simulated or predicted) to generate plot-level phenotypes. 'FieldSimR' provides wrapper functions to simulate the genetic values for multiple traits in multiple environments using the 'R' package 'AlphaSimR'.
