Abstract

Six groundnut varieties were evaluated under rainfed situations for yield and quality characters for stability analysis. Mean square due to G × E (linear) interaction was significant for pod yield and hundred pod weight only. Non-linear component was significant for all the traits indicating the presence of variability among the varieties regulated by various environmental conditions prevailing in different years. S-2d was significant for all the characters studied invalidating the linear prediction of performance of varieties. The variety B 95 registered highest pod yield, hundred-pod weight and hundred-kernel weight across the environments. Based on its non-responsiveness to the fluctuating environmental conditions this variety was adjudged to be more adaptive for these characters.
