Crop plants are often compared in replicated trials over a wide range of environments. The average yield and the residual variance estimated in individual environments are often related. This interferes with the statistical tests usually required in such data. A method is described here that uses the means and residual variances from the individual environments to find a transformation of the original scale to one that reduces the dependence of the means and the variances.
