Abstract

Thirty-six green gram genotypes were raised in four different environment (different sowing
dates) to study the environment and G x E interaction components. The study revealed significant
differences for all the characters, indicating wide differences between environments and differential
behaviour of genotypes in different environments. The linear and non-linear G x E components
were significant for all the characters, indicating the importance of both predictable and unpredictable
components in determining interaction of the genotypes with environments. The genotypes viz.,
GM-4, KM-5-122, KM-5-122 x KM-5-124, KM-5-122 x GM-3, KM-5-124 x GM-4, KM-5-124 x GM-3,
KM-5-167 x KM-5-191, KM-5-167 x GM-3, KM-5-183 x GM-3, GM-4 x GM-3 and GM-4 x K-851 were
stable for seed yield per plant in average environmental condition, whereas KM-5-124 considered
to be stable for poor environmental condition. Hence these genotypes could be used in further
breeding programme.
