Stability of finger millet genotypes under diverse environments

Published on

The present study aimed at deciphering the stability and
patterns of genotype × environment interaction (GEI) in
finger millet genotypes tested in All India Coordinated Trials
using GGE biplot technique. The combined ANOVA for
grain yield of five finger millet cultivars at four environments
showed that environments (E), genotypes (G) and GEI were
highly significant (P<0.01). GGE biplot grouped the four
environments into two mega environments with GPU 67
and VR 990 as winning genotypes. VL 376 was found to be
an ideal genotype in terms of high yield and stability
followed by VR 990 as desirable genotype.
