Abstract


A cross was made between Line No.1 and E-321 in 2002. The material was handled in filial generations following pedigree method from 2002-2018. It was tested in yield trials 2009-14 and was found high yielding as compared to check variety AZRI Mung-2006. In disease screening nurseries it had shown good disease resistance against Mung bean yellow mosaic virus, Urdbean Leaf Crinkle virus and Cercospora disease. It also exhibited tolerance to insect pests. In addition to this, proposed variety needs no special production technology package and fit in a better way in Rice-Wheat cropping system or between wheat and succeeding crop as catch crop due to short duration. The new variety PRI Mung-2018 is suitable for all areas of Punjab province.
