Mungbean is a highly self-pollinating diploid species, with chromosome number of 2n = 22. Varietal improvement in mungbean has benefited greatly from exemplary work done in the past on determination of genetics of key traits. Varietal introductions, pure line selection, recombination breeding and mutagenesis have been employed successfully in developing varieties. Development of high-yielding varieties with synchronous and early maturity (about 60 days), determinate growth habit, large-seed size, resistance to diseases (powdery mildew, Cercospora leaf spot and mungbean yellow mosaic disease) through hybridization and mutagenesis was a game changer in mungbean development. This enabled the expansion of the crop through good adoption by the farming community, particularly in Asia.
