In order to identify stable short duration rice genotypes across different agro-climatic zones in Telangana state, Additive Main Effects and Multiplicative Interaction Models (AMMI) and GGE Bi-plot analyses was performed. Analysis of variance clearly revealed that genotypes contributed highest (34.57 %) followed by environments (32.31 %) and genotype environment interaction (17.10 %) in total sum of squares indicating very greater role played by genotypes, environments and their interactions in realizing final grain yield. AMMI analysis revealed that rice genotypes viz., KNM 2305 (G12), KNM 2307 (G16) and JGL 20776 (G9) were recorded higher mean grain yield with positive interactive principal component analysis 1 (IPCA1) scores whereas, KNM 2307 (G16) and RNR 23595 (G5) were plotted near to zero IPCA1 axis indicating relatively more stable performance across locations.  However, the GGE Bi-plot genotype view depicts that the genotypes viz., RDR 1188 (G6) and KNM 2305 (G12) were known as highly unsteady across locations. Among environments, Rudrur (E4), Kunaram (E2) and Rajendranagar (E5) locations were identified as relatively ideal to realize good yields whereas Jagtial (E1), Kampasagar (E3) and Warangal (E6) locations were poor and most discriminating.  Among the six locations, the performance of genotypes was relatively similar in Kunaram (E2), Kampasagar (E3) and Rudrur (E4), Warangal (E6) though they belong to different agro-climatic zones of Telangana state, whereas Jagtial (E1) location seems to be little divergent. Further, KNM 2305 (G12) and US 314 (G17) were performed better at Jagtial (E1) and Rajendranagar (E5) while MTU 1010 (G8) was found to have good performance in Rudrur (E4) and Warangal (E6) locations. The results conclude that KNM 2305 was high yielder but found to be unstable across locations whereas KNM 2307 (G16) and KPS 6251 (G15) were identified as good with reasonably higher grain yield and stable performance over locations.
