Assessment of Grain Yield Potential of Mungbean in Shivalik Foothills of India

Anil Kumar and Reena

Several experiments were conducted during 2001-04 to select high yielding biotic stress resistant variety of mungbean, that is responsive to the various production factors, under rainfed conditions of Pulses Research Sub-Station, Samba. Station selection, SMS-1 proved superior to the check varieties, PDM-54 and ML-131 with respect to grain yield and reaction to yellow mosaic virus and Cercospora leaf spot. Performance assessment of SMS-1 in on farm trials during 2003 also showed its superiority over the local check variety, ML-131. Further, the entry gave better response to the various production factors viz., fertilizer application, weed control and plant protection measures in comparison to the local variety, ML-131. Yield was highest (1042.0 kg ha-1) in the treatment where all the production factors were clubbed. Percent defoliation by general defoliators showed a significant decrease with improved variety or application of plant protection measures.
