Samenvatting

Many linear and nonlinear mixed response models are proposed to predict the optimum dose of fertilizer. However, a major restriction of this class of models is the normality assumption of the random parameter component. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the performance of linear and nonlinear mixed models of fertilizer dosing with independent normally distributed random parameter components. We compare the Linear Plateau, Spillman-Mitscherlich, and Quadratic random parameter models with different random effects distribution assumption, i.e. the normal, Student-t, slash, and contaminated normal distributions and the random errors following their symmetric normal independent distributions. The method is applied to datasets of multi-location trials of potassium fertilization of soybeans. The results show that the Student-t Spillman-Mitscherlich Response Model is the best model for soybean yield prediction.
