Comparison of Different Methods of Evaluating Genotypes in National Uniformity Wheat Yield Trials in Pakistan

M.A. Masood, M.I. Khan and S.Z. Mustafa    

Abstract: Twenty genotypes of wheat were evaluated at thirty locations for stability parameters of grain yield. Genotype x Environment interaction was significant indicating the influence of environment on grain yield. Mean square due to genotype x environment was highly significant indicating genetic differences among genotypes for linear response to various environments. Stability using parametric approach only three genotypes namely V-97024, V-97112 and IBW-96405 satisfied criterion given by Eberhart and Russell (1966), but only one genotype (V-97024) was declared as a stable cultivator for grain yield considering high mean yield, regression coefficient (b) close to unity and low value of deviation from regression. Cluster analysis was also used to classify similar cultivars but the classification did not classify according to stability parameters. Therefore it is concluded that the conventional stability approach used by Eberhart and Russell and other parameters like ecovalence, deviation from regression and interaction variance should be used for categorizing cultivars.
