Twenty eight soybean genotypes were evaluated in three environments under ralnfed conditions for stability parameters with respect to seed yield and quality traits. Highly signlflcant mean squares due to environments cmd genotype-environment interaction for almost all characters revealed that the expression of genotypes varied in different environments. Both linear and nonlinear components of G x E interaction were significant except branches/plant. The magnitude of linear component was higher for all the characters except pods/plant. Under high yielding environment suitable genotypes were JS 335, PK 472, Pusa 22, and JS 71–05 for seed yield, pod length and pods/plent. MACs 13 and JS 80–21 were suitable for seed yield under low yielding environment.
