Fifty genotypes were evaluated  in different locations of the eastern dry zone of Karnataka through participatory plant breeding  approach. The experiment was conducted in two research stations (ZARS, UAS, Bangalore and ARS, Balajigapade) and farmers’ fields in three villages (Nittur, MN halli and Sathnur). Stability of the genotypes across the different locations of this zone was worked out for seed yield. Eberhart and Russell model of stability was used for analysis. Significant differences were observed for seed yield. Genotypes were identified as promising in different locations based on actual seed yield. Among fifty entries only three entries Kanakapura local, ST-3 and ST-16 showed stability for seed yield.
