Effects of seed rate on yield and yield attributes of mungbean in coastal belt of Bangladesh

A field experiment was carried out at Patuakhali Science and Technology University Farm during February to May 2006 to determine the optimum seed rate of five mungbean cultivars. Five seed rates viz. 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 kg ha-1 (S20, S30, S40, S50, S60, respectively) and five cultivars viz. BARI Mung- 2, BARI Mung-5, BINA Mung-2, BINA Mung-5 and Patuakhali local were tested. Results indicated that BARI Mung-5 and BINA Mung-5 were higher yielding than BARI Mung-2, BINA Mung-2 and Patuakhali local. Interaction effect shows that BARI Mung-5 and BINA Mung-5 produced higher yields when seeds were sown at the rate of 50 kg ha-1. BARI Mung-2 and BINA Mung-2 gave higher seed yields at the seed rate of 30 kg ha-1 while Patuakhali local had the highest seed yield at 20 kg ha-1.
