Adaptation study of mung bean (Vigna radiata) varieties in tepi, south wester Ethiopia

In order to find the adaptability of mung bean varieties a study was carried out at Tepi research center in 2017 and 2019 cropping season. Three varieties were arranged in RCBD design in three replications in six rows with 2.4m x2.4m (9.6m2) with spacing of 40cm between rows and 5cm between plants. Days to flowering, Days to maturity, plant height, Number of pods per plant, were non-significantly affected by varieties. Number of branches per plant, hundred seed weight and grain yield per hectares were significantly influenced by variety. The highest grain yield (2326.8kg /ha) was obtained from NUL-1 variety, followed by Shewa robit (2302.6kg/ha). on the opposite, the lowest grain yield value (1946.3kg/ha) was obtained by variety N-26,Thus both   NUL-1 and Shewa robit varieties were best adapted in Tepi and it will be used for production.
