Abstract :

Aim: Mungbean is one of the most important pulse crops due to the high content of protein as well as the ability to nitrogen fixation in soil. Seed yield is the most complex trait which highly influenced by other traits and also the environment. In this view, the study was aimed to evaluate the relationship between yield and yield attributing traits. Methodology: In the present study, fifty-two mungbean genotypes were evaluated at the experimental farm of the University of Calcutta, Baruipur, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal in the three different years of 2015-2017. The data of eight yield and yield attributing traits (pooled over years) were calculated through the SPAR software, version 2.0. Results: The association study revealed that branches plant-1, pods plant-1 and pod length were exhibited as the most yield contributing traits. Conclusion: Selection based on traits namely branches plant-1, pods plant-1 and pod length would be helpful for future mungbean yield improvement program.
