Advanced breeding lines with acceptable resistance and tolerance levels to broomrape is an important way of decreasing yield loss. The objective of this research was to assess the yield stability of faba bean genotypes under diverse broomrape (Orobanche crenata) prone production environments. Six faba bean genotypes were tested across six environments. The AMMI analysis showed significant (P<0.01) genotype, environment and genotype by environment interaction and the environment explained higher sum of square for the response variable grain yield. The AMMI one gives the best model fitness for the grain yield and broomrape number. Using the AMMI 1 biplot, polygon view of the GGE biplot and comparison of genotypes based on ideal genotype, the genotype ILB4358 was higher yielder and stable with lower Orobanche number followed by the genotype Sel.F5/3382/2003-4. Using the AMMI biplot analysis E3 (Adigolo, 2011) and E4 (Adigolo, 2012) were unfavorable environments, while, E1 (Awliegara, 2011), E2 (Awliegara,), E5 (Kolatsihidi, 2011) and E6 (Kolatsihidi, 2012) were favorable testing environments.
Key words: AMMI, broomrape, environments, genotypes, GGE, faba bean.
