Mungbean/green gram [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] is one of the most important pulse crops. It is grown in almost all parts of the country and belongs to family leguminosae. Mung bean is an excellent source of high quality protein. It is consumed in different ways as dal, halwa, snack and so many other preparations. Ascorbic acid (Vitamin-C) is synthesized in sprouted seeds of mung bean. The leguminous crops have the capacity to fix-atmospheric nitrogen through symbiotic nitrogen fixation. It is also used as green manure crop. It is grown in summer and kharif season in northern India and in southern India. In India, it is the third important pulse crop after chickpea and pigeonpea. The major fungal diseases which infect the mungbean are root rot (Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid), web blight, Rhizoctonia solani Khun (Thanatephorus cucumeris), powdery mildew (Erysiphe polygoni DC), Cercospora leaf spot (Cercospora canescens Ellis and Martin) and anthracnose [Colletotrichum dematium and C. lindemuthianum)
