The experiment was conducted at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Gazipur, Bangladesh during the period of March to June 2008 to assess the seed quality and performance of some mungbean varieties. In the experiment, a total of eight mungbean seed samples belonging eight varieties viz. BINA moog-5, BARI mung-3, BARI mung-4, BARI mung-5, BARI mung-6, BU mug-1, BU mug-2 and BU mug-4 were used for laboratory test. Purity percentage and germination percentage of the seeds of all varieties were higher than the national seed standard. The minimum purity was 99.35%, germination was 88.33% and moisture content of all seed samples was lower than the acceptable seed standard. The minimum moisture content of seed samples was 9.22% and the highest 9.92%. The highest 1000 seed weight differed from 28.93 to 52.98 g among the mungbean varieties. In seed health test, nine species of fungi under six genera were recorded from mungbean seed samples. They were Alternaria brassicicola, A. brassicae, Aspergillus flavus, A. niger, Ascochyta rabiei, Fusarium sp, Macrophomina phaseolina and Rhizopus sp. Among them Aspergillus spp (A. flavus and A. niger) were the most predominant fungi which was followed by Fusarium sp.Download
