An experiment was conducted to study the stability of thirty hybrids of prearlmillet during kharif season at four locations. Analysis of variance for stability (Table 1) revealed that mean squares due to genotypes and environments + G x E interaction were highly significant, indicating thereby existed significant differences among genotypes and also the environments were different from each other and genotypes reacted differently in different environments. The results also revealed that two hybrids viz., 94111A x 1250 and 96111A x (G73-107xbsectap1) were found stable over the environments. The hybrid ICMA97444 x ICMR0/035 was suitable for poor environment.
