Genetic Variability and Correlation Studies in Mungbean

Munawar Khan, Khalid Nawab, Aminullah Khan and Muhammad Safdar Baloch


Investigations were carried out on fifteen divergent genotypes. Results revealed that the cultivar M 22-24 was superior in various yield supporting parameters and produced maximum grain yield per plant. Correlation coefficient between grain yield and its contributing variables showed that grain yield was positively and significantly correlated with number of branches, pods per plant and total biomass per plant. A non-significant positive association of grain yield was observed with days to 50% flowering, days to maturity and pod length. Number of branches, number of pods and dry total biomass were found best among the yield components in mungbean.
