Stability analysis and G*E interaction of eight commercial monogerm cultivars of sugar beet were evaluated in three years at 11 major sugar beet producing locations Karaj, Mashhad, Miandoab, Esfahan, Shiraz, Kermanshah, Kerman, Moghan, Hamedan, Khoy, and Brojerd. A randomized complete block design with four replications was used.In each location cultivars Rasoul, Shirin, Univers, Orbis, 7112Hybrid, 436Hybrid and 428Hybrid were recorded. Data collected from each experiment were subjected to simple analysis of variance and after homgenization of error variance, combined analysis for six traits including RY,SY,SC, WSY, NA and Yield were carried out. The stability parameters such as environmental variance, environmental coefficient of variation, linear regression coefficient, mean square deviation from regression, and linear coefficient of determination for each cultivar were determined. The results of the combined analysis showed significant effect of cultivars, Years(Y), Locations (L), Year*Location (Y*L) and Genotype*Year (G*Y). Comparison of means usingDuncansnew multiple range test showed that cultivars Univers, Orbis and 276Hybrid were superior in many locations compared to other cultivars. Results from stability analysis indicated that Univers and hybrid 276 were the most stable cultivars tested in different environments ofIran.
