Performance of Maize Genotypes on the Basis of Stability Analysis in Pakistan

H.I. Javed, M.A. Masood, S.R. Chughtai, H.N. Malik, M. Hussain and A. Saleem    

Abstract: Six maize genotypes were evaluated in National Uniform Maize Yield Trials across six contrasting locations having different agro-climatic conditions. Pooled analysis of variance for grain yield indicated significant differences for genotypes across the environments, environment across genotypes and their interactions. These significant interactions indicated uneven performance of the genotypes across the environments and years. In stability analysis, all the parameters applied proved two genotypes as the most stable across the environments. These genotypes gave the highest grain yield and were also earlier in maturity. One genotype showed fitness for favourable environments and two for poor yielding environments.
