Two year field screening was undertaken during Kharif season of 2011 and 2012 with eight varieties of Mungbean to ascertain its resistance against Yellow mosaic virus disease. It is evident from the pooled data that no varieties/ lines showed complete resistance to YMV disease during both the consecutive years 2011 and 2012 but it was found that the incidence of the disease varied from 36.70% to 9.12%. The significant lowest incidence was recorded in Sukumar (9.12%), followed by Meha (9.39%). Highest yield was recorded in Sukumar (1.80 kg/plot) and it was at par with Meha (1.71 kg/plot). Significant lowest disease severity was also recorded in Sukumar (3.60 %) and it was statistically at par with Meha (3.91 %). Although PM 05 gave significant higher yield but disease severity and incidence were not statistically at par. Results indicate that both Sukumar and Meha could be cultivated in the plains of West Bengal as a tolerant variety and can also be used as parental lines. The other variety PM 05 may also be used as parental line from the genetic point of view.
