Mungbean is a quantitative short-day plant and grown across environments, locations, and seasons. It has inherent intrinsic tolerance mechanisms to many of the environmental stresses. However, being grown so widely, suffers from high temperatures, terminal moisture stress, soil salinity, and photo-thermo period sensitivity. Significant advancements have been made in the past 3–4 decades towards the development of input responsive, high yielding, disease-resistant, and short-duration varieties… 
Biotic and Abiotic Constraints in Mungbean Production—Progress in Genetic Improvement
Mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek var. radiata] is an important food and cash legume crop in Asia. Development of short duration varieties has paved the way for the expansion of mungbean into
Breeding Progress and Future Challenges: Abiotic Stresses
The strategy of reducing exposure to risk was very successful in transforming mungbean rather than identifying and breeding inherent resilience, and future research efforts must combine known sources of genetic variation with the investigation into the biochemical and physiological processes in order to understand and breed for tolerance to abiotic stress in mung bean.
Deciphering of Genotype × Environment Interaction to Identify Stable Heat-Tolerant Mung Bean Genotypes by GGE Biplot Analysis
Under the climate change scenario, high-temperature stress declines crop yields. The present study was designed with the objectives to identify the stable heat-tolerant genotypes for grain yield
Current Perspectives on Introgression Breeding in Food Legumes
The gains through introgression breeding are significant and underline the need of bringing it in the purview of mainstream breeding while deploying tools and techniques to increase the recombination rate in wide crosses and reduce the linkage drag.
Efficacy of Integrated Management of Web Blight of Mungbean in Kymore Plateu and Satpura Hills Agroclimatic Zone of Madhya Pradesh, India
Mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) commonly known as green gram or golden gram is an important pulse crop. Mungbean seeds are rich in proteins (∼24% easily digestible protein), fiber,
Ecogeographic assessment of mung bean (Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek) from the collection of the Vavilov Institute (VIR)
A strong variability of all studied characters and their dependence on the environment were observed in both locations, and an increase in the strength of the relationships between crop characters may be regarded as an indicator of unfavorable growing conditions.
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
Association Mapping for Yield Attributing Traits and Yellow Mosaic Disease Resistance in Mung Bean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek]
Evaluating genetic diversity among mung bean genotypes and detecting genomic regions associated with various yield attributing traits and yellow mosaic disease (YMD) resistance by association mapping and population genetic structure analysis suggest that the studied genotypes may have common ancestral history at some level.


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.
Abiotic Stress Responses in Legumes: Strategies Used to Cope with Environmental Challenges
A general overview of the recent achievements on the study of abiotic stress responses in a broad range of model, grain and forage legumes species is provided, highlighting the different approaches used.
Salinity stress restraining mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) production: Gateway for genetic improvement
Production of improved salt resistant varieties by exploring the germplasm resources and scarce natural agricultural resources is the primary requirement to fullfill the demand of 70% more nutritious food for the increased population by 2050.
Transcriptome Profiling of Wild Arachis from Water-Limited Environments Uncovers Drought Tolerance Candidate Genes
This is the first report on identification of differentially expressed genes under drought stress and recovery in wild Arachis species, and the generated transcriptome data will allow the characterization of new alleles and development of molecular markers associated with drought responses in peanut.
Physiological and Agronomic Strategies to Increase Mungbean Yield in Climatically Variable Environments of Northern Australia
In this review, opportunities to improve mungbean productivity have been analysed at four key levels including phenology, leaf area development, dry matter accumulation, and its partitioning into grain yield.
Plant tolerance to high temperature in a changing environment: scientific fundamentals and production of heat stress-tolerant crops
There is a differential effect of climate change both in terms of geographic location and the crops that will likely show the most extreme reductions in yield as a result of expected extreme fluctuations in temperature and global warming in general.
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
Transformation of Mungbean Plants for Salt and Drought Tolerance by introducing a gene for an osmoprotectant glycine betaine
Stable transformation and expression of transgene ( codA gene) was achieved in mungbean through Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated system using cotyledonary node explants, under the optimized conditions.
