The study was aim to find out the suitable herbicides and their performance on controlling weeds in mungbean field. Three varieties (V1 = BARI Mung-5, V2 = BARI Mung-6, V3= BARI Mung-4) and four herbicides (T1 = Whipsuper, T2 = Panida 33 EC, T3 = Paraxon, T4 = Topstar 40 WP) were used in this experiment with a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) design using three replications. The results indicated that both the varieties and herbicides and also their interactions significantly affected all observed parameters. The highest number of pods plant-1 (23.44), number of seeds pod-1 (15.41),  1000-seed weight (54.54 g), pod yield (2827.63 kg ha-1), seed yield (1893 kg ha-1) and harvest index (24.98%) were found from the combine effect of BARI Mung-6 with Topstar 40 WP. From the results it was concluded that herbicide Topstar 40 WP showed the best performance by maximum reduction of weed population in BARI Mung-6 and further this experiment may be carry out in different locations of Bangladesh in different season.
