AbstractFive faba bean genotypes (Syrian,Turky,Italy,spanish and local variety koshtaba) were planted in two locations (Sumail and Zakho) for two seasons (2010/2011 and 2011/2012) using randomized complete block design with three replications. Four stability techniques has been compared with Safety-first selection indices,vis, variance a cross environments (EV), Eberhart and Russell (ER), Finaly and Wilkinson (FW) and Shukla (SH).combined analysis of stability exhibited significant differences between genotypes and environments for all characters excepted no. of tellers/plant and no. of seed/code. High broad sense heritability for all characters excepted no.of seed/pod in zakho (season,2010/2011) Simple correlation coefficient was positive and significant for grain yield/plant and for 100 seed weight and plant height. Turkish and Sayrian genotypes was in the first rank by FW, ER, SH, indices for plant height and long pod and no.of seed/pod and seed yield.
