The aim of this work was the study of prediction errors associated with four imputation methods applied to solve the problem of unbalance in experiments with genotype×environment (G×E) interaction. A simulation study was carried out based on four complete matrices of real data obtained in trials of interaction G×E of pea, cotton, beans and eucalyptus, respectively. The simulation of unbalance was done with random withdrawal of 10, 20 and 40% in each matrix. The prediction errors were found using cross-validation and were tested in classic intervals of 95% for missing data. For data imputation, algorithms were considered using models of additive effects without interaction and model estimates of additive effects with multiplicative interaction based on robust submodels. In general, the best prediction errors were obtained after imputation through an additive model without interaction.
