Barley is the fourth largest grain crop globally with varieties suited to temperate, subarctic, and subtropical areas. The identification and subsequent selection of superior varieties are complicated by genotype-by-environment interactions. The main objective of this study was to use parametric and non-parametric stability measures along with a GGE biplot model to identify high-yielding stable barley genotypes in Iran. Eighteen barley genotypes (16 new genotypes and two control varieties) were evaluated in a randomized complete block design with four replications at five locations over three growing seasons (2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016). The combined analysis of variance indicated that the environment main effect accounted for>69% of all variation, compared with
