Cowpea is an important legume in many developing countries and it is a major vegetable source of protein for human consumption especially in Africa and Asia countries including India. Cowpea is grown in almost all the agro ecological zones in India, the performance of genotypes exhibits a wide range of variation within and between environments because of genotype × environment interaction, so in the present study the seventeen promising advanced lines of cowpea and three checks were evaluated for yield and yield attributing traits across three environments E1, E2, and E3. Stability analysis was carried out using Eberhart and Russell (1966) model. Based on stability parameters, the F6 stabilized lines of DC 15 × CPD 118 and DC15 × DCS 47-1-1 were identified as most stable genotypes for seed yield. Likewise F6 Promising lines C 152 × IC 202860, DC 15 × CPD 118 and GC 3 × CPD 115 for pod length, C 152 × GL3, DC16 and C 152 × IC 202860 for pod number, C 152 × P 206, C 152 × DCS 5-3-20, DC 15 × Job 129 and DCS 47-1 × DC 15 for number of number of seeds per pod were found to be stable. All the superior stabilized families can be further tested in different locality to ascertain their superiority in different agro climatic regions.
