Pulses have been traditionally recognized as an indispensable constituent of Indian diet and an important source of protein for the poor as well as for the vegetarians who constitute major population of the country. The major pulses grown in Kharif season are Arhar (Pigeon Pea) and Moong (Green Gram) Urd (Black gram) and Kulthi (Horse Gram) and in rabi season include chickpea, lentil, mungbean (Summer), urd bean. India is the largest producer as well as consumer of pulses, and is the largest importer in the world. The situation in India is very alarming due to high demand and low supply of the pulses. To cope this situation the government of India initiated efforts to boost the pulse production through cluster front line demonstration through Krishi Vigyan Kendra which already doing Front Line Demonstration of improved varieties of green gram namely IPM 02-03, SML 668 and HUM 16 and boosting production. The data like average number of branches, pods/plant, grain/pod, disease incidence (%) and grain yield (q/ha) were recorded during investigation. Among all the varieties assessed, variety IPM 02-03  proved to be the best with highest number of pods/plant (38.1) and minimum incidence of yellow mosaic disease of 6.6 per cent resulting in the highest yield of 15.7 q/ha followed by SML668 with disease incidence of 7.9 per cent , 34.6 pods/plant and yield of 14.2 q/ ha. Hence, it was inferred that IPM 02-03 variety of green gram proved better followed by SML668.
