Fourteen mung bean genotypes were evaluated at Barani Agricultural Research Station, Kohat during 2014 in randomized complete block design with three replications. Analysis of variance depicted significant differences among genotypes for all the traits studied. Maximum plant height was recorded for genotype VC-6321 (105.7cm), pod length for Mung NM-06 (9.7cm), seeds pod-1 for NM-19-19 (12), biological yield for NM-92 (13111.1 kgha-1), whereas Mung NM11 showed maximum values for pods plant-1 (22.5), 1000-grain weight (55.6 g), grain yield (3401.8 kg ha-1) and harvest index (36.5%). Genotype Mung NM11 showed highest values pods plant-1, 1000-grain weight and grain yield and could be recommended for general cultivation in Kohat region.
