India is the largest producer and consumer of pulses in the world contributing around 25-28% of the total global production. Among the pulses grown in india, chickpea, pigeon pea, urdbean, greengram, lentil, fieldpea, lathyrus are important Pulses crops. Farmers grow green gram crop not as a principal crop but as a bonus crop for extra income. Pulse crops are least preferred by farmers because of high risk (weather & pest incidence) and less remunerative than cereals. Mungbean yellow mosaic virus (MYMV) disease is one of the most vicious diseases of green gram and cause economic losses due to this virus account up to 85% in green gram which is spreading faster towards newer areas. IDM module are reduce the yellow mosaic disease incidence from 81.82 to 82.83 % resulted enhance the productivity from 11.11 to 15.91 %, respectively in 2011-12 & 2015-16.
