Abstract: A study was conducted in two years (2005 and 2006) to evaluate promising white jute to identify suitable genotypes for fibre yield. The evaluation carried out by All India Network Project on Jute and Allied Fibres under Initial Evaluation Trial (IET) and Advanced Varietal Trial-I (AVT-I). Genotype × Environment interactions in 6 white jute (Corchorus capsularis L.) genotypes including two checks were studied over ten environments for plant height, basal diameter, green weight and fibre yield. The six entries in the IET and AVT-I responded differentially to the ten environments as indicated by their non-significant difference for the different traits in the different environments. On the basis of stability parameters Wi (Wricke\'s Ecovalence) and Di (Hanson\'s genotypic stability) the genotypes NDC-2008 and NDC-2001 were identified as stable for fibre yield and its attributing traits, over the environments..
