The experimental material comprising of seven germplasm lines safed musli (Chlorphytum borivilianum L.) were grown in Randomized block design with three replications in a four row plot of three meter length, having 30 x15 cm row to row and plant to plant distance, in three environments at Herbal Park, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India during 2011-14. The objective of this study was to identify stable genotype of safed musli for fasciculated root yield and its contributing traits viz., number of fasciculated roots/bunch, thickness of main fasciculated root, length of main fasciculated root, length of middle leaves, width of middle leaves and number of leaves per plant. The analysis of variance for phenotypic stability revealed that mean squares due to genotypes were significant for all the characters. The genotype x environment linear and non-linear components was significant for most of the traits. Germplasm line PC-1 and PC-2 were found stable for thickness of main fasciculated root under unfavorable environmental conditions. Similarly, germplasm line P-4 was found stable for length of main fasciculated root in favorable environment. Therefore, these promising lines could be further exploited for commercial cultivation or could be used in further improvement programme.
