Other properties to be distributed are 4,292 acres of Muthera Farm, 640 acres Ehothia farm (both of which are in Mau Narok- Nakuru county), Thimbigua farm (96 acres), Closeburn Estate (commercial plots- 10 acres), Closeburn Estate (farm- 176 acres), Ikinu farm (11 acres), Thimbigwa plot, Banana Hill plot
, among others.
The Hill plot
is the plot of ((k, [H.sup.-1.sub.k,n]), 1 [less than or equal to] k < n).
THE final event of the 125th anniversary year took place this autumn - the planting of the third copse of 125 trees - at the Grey Mare Hill plot
of glebe land just off Kiln Pit Hill.
Oliver Fleming discovered his parents' Lodge Hill plot
was a safety risk when he visited their grave to lay flowers last weekend.
These intervals are chosen to correspond to the region of the Hill plot
deemed to be close enough to a straight line that [P.sub.50] can be accurately estimated.
After harvest, injected spikes from each hill plot
were hand threshed in bulk.
In both breeding phases, 21 future parental lines were selected by means of replicated single-year hill plot
field trials sown at one or two locations.
Two hill plots
from each susceptible cultivar, and one hill plot
of seeds from each resistant isoline, were planted (24 May 1996, 5 June 1997) in a randomized complete block design with three replications.
Grain yield was recorded on every hill plot
. After threshing, seed of the same entry from the two hill plots
at a location was combined to provide sufficient seed for grain quality testing.
Approximately 150 spikes were randomly harvested from individual [F.sub.2] plants and then planted to establish [F.sub.3] hill plots
, each containing grain from a single [F.sub.2] spike.
[F.sub.4] lines from 39 resistant F3 plants were grown in panicle-hill plots in 1994 at Fargo, ND, and F4 panicles were selected from stem and crown rust resistant hill plots
. Seed from 32 selected [F.sub.4] panicles was sown in hill-plots, comprised of two hills in 1995, and seed from a selected [F.sub4:5] hill-plot was bulked to produce the line that was designated ND9508252.
Sixty-three [F.sub.4] lines from resistant [F.sub.3] plants were grown in panicle-hill plots in 1992 at Fargo, ND, and [F.sub.4] panicles were selected from stem and crown rust resistant hill plots
. Seed from 51 selected [F.sub.4] panicles was sown in hill-plots comprised of two hills and seed from a selected [F.sub.4:5] hill-plot was bulked to produce the line that was designated ND941119 when it was grown in an unreplicated four-row plot in 1994 as one of 12 [F.sub.4:6] lines selected from the population.
