An experiment was conducted at the research field of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University to study the effect of potassium and boron on low-temperature tolerance in mungbean under late sowing conditions. Two levels of potassium (10 kg and 20 kg    ha-1) and 2 levels of boron (1 kg and 2 kg ha-1) were applied with recommended fertilizer dose in case of mungbean sown on 24 September and 25 October. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications. Results revealed that mungbean sown on 24 September performed better than those sown on 25 October but the addition of potassium and boron with recommended dose improved the performance of late sown mungbean. Mungbean sown on 24 September produced the highest seed yield with the addition of 10 kg K and 2 kg B while mungbean sown on 25 October provided maximum yield due to the addition of 10 kg K and 1 kg B. So, 10 kg K + 2 kg B and 10 kg K + 1 kg B with recommended dose may be suggested for mungbean sown on 24 September and 25 October, respectively.
