Mungbean yellow mosaic Indian virus (MYMIV) and bruchid infestation are severe production constraints of mungbean in South Asia, a major global mungbean production area. Marker-assisted selection for resistance against these disorders while maintaining or even improving agronomic traits is an important step toward breeding elite mungbean varieties. This(More)
The rising temperatures (>35°C) are proving detrimental to summer-sown mungbean genotypes that experience inhibition of vegetative and reproductive growth. In the present study, the mungbean plants growing hydroponically at varying temperatures of 30/20°C (control), 35/25, 40/30, and 45/35°C (as day/night 12 h/12 h) with (50 μM) or without ascorbic acid(More)
Yellow mosaic disease (YMD) is one of the major diseases affecting mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek). In this study, we report the mapping of the quantitative trait locus (QTL) for mungbean yellow mosaic India virus (MYMIV) resistance in mungbean. An F8 recombinant inbred line (RIL) mapping population was generated in Thailand from a cross between(More)
Mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) is an important pulse crop in India. A major constraint for improved productivity is the yield loss caused by mungbean yellow mosaic disease (MYMD). This disease is caused by several begomoviruses which are transmitted by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae). The objective of this study was(More)
