Abstract: The study was carried out in the Field Laboratory of the Department of Crop Botany, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from October 2000 to February 2001 to evaluate the influence of seed treatment with Indole Acetic Acid (IAA) by the concentration of 50 ppm, 100 ppm and 200 ppm on the growth, yield and yield contributing characters of two modern mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) varieties viz. Barimoog-4 and Barimoog-5. The two-factor experiment was laid out by Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with 3 replications. In the experimental, seed treatment with 100 ppm IAA resulted the highest plant height, leaf area, leaf area index and number of seeds pod-1 (7.73). On the other hand, seed treatment with 200 ppm IAA resulted the highest Relative Growth Rate (RGR), Crop Growth Rate (CGR), Net Assimilation Rate (NAR), total dry matter, number of pods plant-1 (16.30), pod length (5.59 cm), fresh weight of pod plant-1 (13.00 g), dry weight of pod plant-1 (9.65 g), 1000-seed weight (40.10 g), seed yield plant-1 (4.99 g), harvest index (38.48). In addition, among the mungbean varieties, Binamoog-5 performed better than that of Binamoog-4.
