Ear-bed method
This organic breeding method was developed especially for cereals, but it may also be used for other crops. An ear bed is a seedbed in which the grains from one ear are sown in the same sequence in which they were arranged in the ear. Thus the plants in the seedbed (ear-bed) reflect the quality of the original ear. The plants' vigour, nutritional quality, resistance, production etc. will differ depending on whether the plants are grown from grains from the middle, upper or lower part of the ear. To induce additional variation, the plants originating from the upper part of the ear are selected in one year and plants from the lower part in the next year. The ear-bed method may also be used in the early stages of variety development. In this case, plants are not selected from the different ends of the ear but from the middle (Schmidt, 1994).

ear bed method
método almácigo-espiga


Explanation:
Creo que te referís a esto:

Método almácigo-espiga. Es un método desarrollado por los agricultores
biodinámicos. Es una versión de la selección por pedigree aún más potente ya
que en este caso no sólo se conocen los progenitores, sino que se siembran
las semillas en un orden determinado dependiendo de su posición en la espiga
o en el fruto, permitiendo una valoración visual rápida del potencial productivo
de la planta y a la vez una selección integradora de la variabilidad.

ear bed method
método de acamado


Explanation:
El mismo párrafo lo explica. Es el método de segar y acomodar el producto tal o en capas que corresponde a diferentes calidades y entonces se uniforman. La capa superior, parece ser la de mejor calidad, la media y la inferior. Y luego de ahí se seleccionan para hacer las combinaciones del próximo cultivo. "Ear bed" es el área o era en que se acomoda el producto cosechado.
