The present investigation was conducted at laboratories and research farm of Department of Seed Science and Technology, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. Fifteen genotypes of mungbean were evaluated for their performance for different viability and vigour parameters viz. standard germination, seedling length, seed weight, seed density, vigour index-I,  vigour index-II, accelerated ageing test, electrical conductivity, tetrazolium test, dehydrogenase activity test, field emergence index and seedling establishment in summer and kharif season to assess the association among different seed quality parameters. Standard germination and seedling establishment were found significantly and positively correlated with all the seed quality parameters except electrical conductivity in both the seasons. Electrical conductivity was found significantly and negatively associated with all parameters studied in lab and field.

Key words: Mungbean, Germination, Seedling, Genotypes
