Genotypic-environmental interactions were ascertained for 13 plant and ear characters of importance in sweet corn (Zea mays L.). The experiment consisted of 14 hybrids evaluated at each of 5 locations for 3 consecutive years. The results suggest the manner in which each character should be evaluated. In addition, comparisons were made between hybrids produced by the conventional method and hybrids produced by the cyto-sterile method. The differences between the two types for most economic characters were insignificant
