This study was conducted at twelve locations in North Western Amhara region, to decide the adaptability of released mungbean varieties with stable performance across the tested environments five varieties were undertaken on this study (Rasa, shewa robit local, Arkebe, NLV-1 and Boreda) 2016 and 2017 cropping season. The ANOVA shows it is significant difference(P>0.01) among the genotype and also highly significant different on Genotypes by Environment interaction(GXE) among the tested genotype Rasa is high yielder and stable variety and NLV-1 and Boreda follow the second and the third promising variety for the area.
