Maize (Zea mays L.) is belongs to a tribe Maydaea of the family Poaceae. Its use and potential productivity enabled maize to be a strategic priority crop in the world. However, due to the occurrence of G x E interactions, it is very difficult to select stable and widely adapted varieties over a wide range of environmental conditions. Understanding of the causes of G x E interaction can be used to establish breeding objectives, to identify ideal test conditions and to formulate recommendations for areas of optimal cultivar adaptation. In order to identify stable genotypes, the G x E interaction must be partitioned into stability statistics that are assigned to each genotype evaluated across a range of environments. The statistical analysis of G x E interaction is important in applied statistics as well as for the analysis of experiments in plant breeding and crop production. Different statistical methods have been proposed for the estimation and partitioning of G x E interactions. Therefore, this book is helpful to mid-level researchers, students and producers who seek to know more about G x E interaction, stability statistics and the pattern of environmental classification.
