Relation Between Dry Matter Production and Yield of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) Varieties Influenced by Planting Method and Sowing Time at Summer

M.S. Rahman, M. Eunus, M. A. Mannan, M. R. Ali and M. M. Hoque    

Abstract: Two planting methods viz. line and broadcast, five varieties viz. Local, Barimung 2, Barimung 3, Binamung 2 and Binamung 5 and five sowing dates viz. February 5, February 20, March 5, March 20 and April 5 were tested to know the relation between dry matter production and yield of munbean. The highest seed yield (890 kg ha‾1) was obtained from Barimung 2 and significantly higher seed yield (870 kg ha‾1) was obtained from February 20 sowing, while March 20 sowing yielded the lowest (593 kg ha‾1). Barimung 2, Barimung 3 and Binamung 2 performed better in line sowing compared with broadcast method. Line sowing method was found good when the crop was sown on February 20. Binamung 5 gave the highest seed yield (1071 kg ha‾1) when sown on February 20. Binamung 2 gave the highest seed yield (1163 kg ha‾1) when sown on February 20 in line sowing method.
