Abstract:

Mung bean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek), commonly known as greengram, is a significant grain legume crop cultivated across the globe and is native to India. It is the most useful pulse crop having an economic significance towards the nutritional security and sustainable agriculture. As it is rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins which are easily digestible, it is an inseparable ingredient in Indian diet when supplemented with cereals particularly rice. It assimilates the atmospheric nitrogen with the Rhizobium bacterial symbiotic association. It subsequently provides the requirement of nitrogen for itself and the next crop in that particular land. It is a short duration crop and due to its photo and thermo insensitive characteristics, it is generally used for crop diversification and crop intensification purposes. A seed of mungbean is highly nutritious for human consumption. It contains edible proteins, fats, fibers and carbohydrates. Mungbean is a tropical legume widely cultivate in the subtropical climatic conditions across the globe. It can tolerate dry land condition for cultivation and decrease the depletion of soil nutrient status. It is constantly used as a fodder crop and a green manuring crop since decades. This review aims to highlight the importance of greengram as a crop in the context of food security, improvement of its agronomic characters and the progress on the recent research and development to explore its genetics using recent developed biotechnological tools.
