Abstract

180 germplasm lines of mungbean comprising both indigenous and exotic collections along with checks were evaluated in augmented block design for yield and its components during rabi 2002–03. The checks were found to be superior to the test material for all the characters studied, except for 100 seed weight. The ANOVA for yield indicated highly significant differences among test varieties and checks. The traits plant height and number of clusters per plant recorded highly significant and positive association with grain yield, while number of seeds per pod showed negative association with seed yield.
