Mungbean is a short-season tropical grain legume grown on some six million hectares each year. Though predominantly a crop of smallholder farmers and subsistence agriculture mungbean is increasingly seen as a high value crop for international markets with broad acre production under modern farming systems established in Australia, South America, West Asia and Africa. Key benefits of mungbean are its nutritional and monetary value. It provides a short duration, flexible disease break when fit… 
Improving Drought Tolerance in Mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek): Morpho-Physiological, Biochemical and Molecular Perspectives
The impact of drought stress on mungbean and mitigation strategies for breeding high-yielding drought-tolerant mung bean varieties through classical and modern omics technologies are highlighted.
Use of Phenomics for Differentiation of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek) Genotypes Varying in Growth Rates Per Unit of Water
To the best of the knowledge, this is perhaps the first report stating the use of a phenomics method as a promising tool for assessing growth rates and also the productive use of water in mungbean crop.
Assessment of root phenotypes in mungbean mini-core collection (MMC) from the World Vegetable Center (AVRDC) Taiwan
Germplasm with potentially favorable root traits has been identified for further studies to identify the donor genotypes for breeding cultivars with enhanced adaptation to water-deficit stress and other stress conditions.
Response of Mungbean (cvs. Celera II-AU and Jade-AU) and Blackgram (cv. Onyx-AU) to Transient Waterlogging
Both mungbean and blackgram genotypes were delayed in emergence in response to the shorter periods of transient waterlogging at germination, and with the longer water logging germination and emergence failed, whereas at the seedling stage both showed adaptation by the formation of adventitious roots.
Microsatellite-based association mapping for agronomic traits in mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek)
There was sufficient genetic variation among the 70-mungbean genotypes as depicted by 91 microsatellite markers and marker-trait associations will be helpful in genetic improvement of mungbean through molecular breeding.
Genetic diversity and population genetic structure analysis of an extensive collection of wild and cultivated Vigna accessions.
The population genetic structure of Vigna supported genetic diversity analysis and provided an insight into the genetic lineage of these species which will help in effective use of germplasm for development of cultivars following selective prebreeding activities.
Resistance status of mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) advanced breeding materials against mungbean yellow mosaic India virus
Abstract Seventy-one advanced breeding lines of mungbean were screened under epiphytotic conditions in the field for resistance against yellow mosaic disease (YMD) using infector technique during
Gamma-rays and EMS induced resistance to mungbean yellow mosaic India virus in mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek] and its validation using linked molecular markers
The induced mutagenesis integrated with powerful emerging molecular and next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools would be highly helpful in breeding mungbean for durable resistance against threatening MYMIV.
Genome-Wide Analysis of Late Embryogenesis Abundant Protein Gene Family in Vigna Species and Expression of VrLEA Encoding Genes in Vigna glabrescens Reveal Its Role in Heat Tolerance
Late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins are identified in many crops for their response and role in adaptation to various abiotic stresses, such as drought, salinity, and temperature. The LEA


Breeding for tolerance to abiotic stresses in mungbean
Mungbean [Vigna radiata (L) Wilczek] is one of the important short duration pulse crops. It is grown over a wide range of soils throughout the world. Historically, India has been the largest global
Physiology of Mungbean and Development of the Mungbean Crop Model
Stepwise yield improvements in mungbean since the first introduction of varieties such as Emerald and White Gold have transformed the crop into an important summer legume and the main rotation option
Salinity and High Temperature Tolerance in Mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] from a Physiological Perspective
This review focuses on salinity and HT stresses on mungbean grown as a fallow crop and/or a relay crop in cereal cropping systems, and highlights gaps that need to be bridged through future mung bean research.
Diagnosis and management of halo blight in Australian mungbeans: a review
This review synthesises current and emerging technologies to develop improved management strategies for the control of halo blight in mungbean.
Towards Development of Climate Smart Mungbean: Challenges and Opportunities
Through various breeding approaches, climate smart traits can be incorporated in mungbean which will lead them to adapt to changing climate and perform well across environments.
Screening of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek) Genotypes against Water Stress Mediated through Polyethylene Glycol
Drought is one of the major abiotic stresses which limits the crop production and seed germination and early seedling growth are considered as most critical phases for seed establishment, determining successful crop production.
Relative drought tolerance of major rainfed crops of the semi-arid tropics
With increased clay content and gradual water stress, it may be possible to use this method to detect varietal differences in crops like maize, soybean, pearl millet, sorghum etc., which are less drought tolerant than cowpea.
The effect of drought and heat stress on reproductive processes in cereals.
The results achieved so far indicate that various plant organs, in a definite hierarchy and in interaction with each other, are involved in determining crop yield under stress.
