Fourty finger millet genotypes were evaluated in four environments to examine the stability of these genotypes for grain yield and its related traits. Out of forty genotypes two genotype L 48 and MR 34 recorded average stability for number of fingers indicated wide adaptability of these genotypes under all environments. Genotypes showing better performance under favourable environment were DPI 20114, DPI 20132, L 48, MR 34, DM 4, DM 7, GPU 58 and VR 847 for length of finger. General stability for grain yield per plant was found in the genotypes DPI 20132, L 48, L112, DM 4, GPU 58 and VR 849. These genotypes are worthy to be utilized in the future finger millet breeding.
