Dear R-help subscribers,

    Many thanks for all the answers I received either by mail or through the list, and that were most helpful.

  For the sake of the list records, I wanted to post the solution, I eventually could obtain, to the problem I have submitted.

  I am summarizing the question here. It was how to use the panel function "panel.curve" when the expression used in this function to to add a fitted line to the points in each panel depends not only on x, but also on the value of the conditioning variable for the considered panel.

This solution is based on hints given to me by Deepayan Sarkar, it relies on the use of "packet.number" and "panel.number":

xyplot(n ~ cg | di, data = myData,

        scale = list(y = "free", x = "free"),
        groups = bloc,
        as.table = T,
        xlab = "Cg",
        ylab = "N / ha",
        panel = function(x, y, subscripts, groups, packet.number = di, 
panel.number, ...) {
          panel.grid(h = -1, v = -1, col = "grey", lwd = 1, lty = 2)
          panel.curve(expr = 
f.fit(unique(rev(packet.number))[panel.number], a, b, a1, b1, x),
                      n = 50, curve.type = "l", col = "lightblue", ...)
          panel.superpose(x, y, pch = c(1, 2), col = 
                          panel.groups = "panel.xyplot", subscripts, 

        key = list( space = "top", transparent = TRUE, columns = 2,
          points = list( pch = c(1, 2), col = c("deeppink", "blue") ),
          text = list( c("bloc 3", "bloc 4"))),

Any further comment would be welcome
