An experiment was carried out during zaid 2014, 20 diverse genotypes of mungbean were evaluated for their pre harvest sprouting (PHS) tolerance and other important agronomic traits. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters studied. Seed germination % in pods(SGP), which was used as a measure of PHS tolerance, ranged from 2.078 in Vigna radiate var: sublobata (wild progenitor of mungbean) to 99.9 in the cultivar PDM139 . The parameters direct and indirect effect revealed in the present studies and give an idea about different parameter like pods and seeds traits playing role against pre harvest sprouting in mung bean. The present investigation also provide information on the characters of some of the popular mung bean genotypes related to pre harvest sprouting tolerance.

Key word: Mung bean, Pre harvest sprouting , Seed dormancy
