Forty indigenous genotypes of mungbean collected from different institute/organizations were evaluated under eight artificially created environments for stability analysis for seed yield and its components using Eberhart and Russell’s (1966) model. Pooled analysis of variance indicated significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters except number of seeds per pod. The linear component of GxE was significant only for days to 50% flowering, plant height, number of seeds per pod and 100 seed weight suggesting that the prediction of performance of genotypes were possible across the environments for these characters.  On the basis of stability parameters, genotypes KM 2194, KM 2224, KMU 41, KMU 42, and KMU 55 were identified as desirable for seed yield.
