The experiment was laid out in RBD with three replications. Among varieties, Meha exhibited the highest seed yield 1171.35 kg ha-1 while the lowest seed yield 760.05 kg ha-1 was obtained with PM 09-6 variety. The highest yield in Meha was characterized by more number of pods per unit area and higher dry matter accumulation. The results indicated that the variety Meha which was significantly superior to other mungbean varieties with harvest index 27.20%, and the Benefit-Cost ratio of 2.80.
