The stability of high yielding hybrid rice varieties is very important to meet food security. The grain yield (GY) stability of 13 hybrid rice varieties in multi-environment with type IV climate condition (E1, E2, E3, and E4) was analyzed using genotype main effects and genotype x environment interaction (GGE). Combined analysis of variance showed environment and genotype by environment (GxE) interaction which accounts 45% and 28% of the total variation, respectively, as the main factors influencing the GY significantly (p < 0.005). GGE biplots were generated using the two interaction principal components (PC1 and PC2) which accounts a total of 92.4% of the GxE effect for GY. GGE biplot analysis identified best performing genotypes for a specific environment like M1 (Mestizo 1), M60 (PAC 801), and M55 (Mestizo 55) at E1 and E2, M60 and M6 (SL-8H) at E3, and M6 at E4. M1 was ranked as top 1, M60 as top 2, M6 as top 3, and M55 as top 4 in four tested environments with a mean GY of 7.48, 7.40, 6.93, and 6.86 t/ha, respectively. Therefore, M1, M60, M6, and M55 should be recommended to rice farm areas of SOCCSKSARGEN and other places in the Philippines with type IV climate condition such as Davao regions.
