The aim of this study was to compare the Multiple Linear Regression and Artificial Neural Network models in prediction of grain yield of ten landrace varieties of lima bean and evaluate adaptability and stability through the Lin and Binns method for identification of the best performing variety. Trials were conducted in the municipalities of Teresina, PI, and São Domingos do Maranhão, MA, through measurement of 12 traits, except for grain yield in São Domingos do Maranhão. The parameters of

The Artificial Neural Network proved to be more adequate for prediction of grain yield. Adaptability and stability analyses indicated that the environments are discriminant for selection of promising genotypes, and that the landrace variety Mulatinha can be recommended for planting in the municipalities.
