Abstract

A set of 28 crosses involving ten parents was studied to get information on the extent of herterosis over better parent (BP), mid parent (MP) and standard variety (SV) for yield and yield contributing characters. The maximum better parent heterosis for grain yield/plant was observed to be 42.23% and that of standard variety found to be 53.65%. The crosses showing heterosis for grain yield were not heterotic for all the characters. Tata mung local x KDM-1, AKM9504 x PIP-2-54-4, AKM 8802 x Tata mung local, Tata mung local x TARM-18 and Kopargaon x KDM-1 hybrids were identified as promising for many desirable traits and they may be useful in exploiting hybrid vigour in mungbean.
