Mungbean Cultivars (Vigna radiata L.)Evaluation Trial Based on Selected Physiological Growth Parameters at Hawassa University, Ethiopia

Ashenafi Dana


The world population is increasing at alarming rate and obviously overwhelming majority of this Populous world is suffering due to the insufficient and imbalanced diet. Mungbean  is produced for both human consumption and as fodder.The experiment was conducted in the field of advanced crop physiology experimental station, in Hawassa University College of Agriculture Campus with the objective of Evaluation of Mungbean cultivars variation on selected physiological growth parameters . Design RCBD with three replication and three improved Mungbean cultivars (MH-97-6, Sunaina and Goffa Local) were used in this experiment. All agronomic practices uniformly was applied per plot.  All necessary data were collected and analyzed using MS-Excel and manually. Results showed that there were significant variations among the mungbean cultivars relative growth rate, crop growth rate, biomass yield, net assimilation rate, specific leaf area   and leaf area ratio. The  higher (767.0833 gm) and lower (569.625 gm) biomass yield obtained from   the two cultivars Goffa Local and MH-97-6 respectively where as higher NAR and RGR was recorded on Goffa local, sunaina and MH-97-6  respectively but low NAR value obtained from MH-97-6. Hence, the variation in cultivars for different growth parameters is important for the improvement of the cultivars for the further production.
