Identification of rice genotypes with high stability and yield is an important aspect to the varietal recommendation of the national cooperative testing (NCT). Twenty-three rice genotypes (selection after seven generations), and the four check varieties were evaluated in grain yield (GY) to six environments. Additive main effects and multiplicative interaction (AMMI) found high significance in genotype (G), environment (E) and G by E interaction effects and in the first four interaction principal component analysis. Three public-derived genotypes: M19-250GY.3-1-2-3-4-5 (G4), M19-300GY.9-1-2-3-4-5 (G14) and M19-250GY.6-1-2-3-4 (G8), and two private-derived genotypes: Priv2-250GY.2-1-2-3-4 (G20) and Priv3-300GY.1-1-2-3-4-5 (G23) were the most stable genotypes. M19-250GY.1-1-2-3-4-5 (G2), M19-250GY.4-1-2-3-4 (G5) and M19-250GY.6-1-2-3-4-5 (G9), and two check varieties: NSIC Rc262 (G24) and NSIC Rc132 (G26) had the highest in GY. Stable genotypes can be a good gene source to breeding programs targeting rice with wider phenotypic adaptability while high yielding genotypes can be submitted for NCT. Overall, AMMI is useful in determining important variations and highly adaptable genotypes in different environments.
