A field trail was conducted to evaluate the yield potential of six hybrid mung bean (Vigna radiata L.) lines viz; BRM-310, BRM-311, BRM-325, BRM-331, BRM-334, BRM-335 and two varieties Chakwal mung and Azri mung-06 as check at research area of Regional Agricultural Research Institute Bahawalpur. Randomized Complete Block Design was used with three replications of each strain/variety. Recommended agricultural practices were applied uniformly. Various yield parameters were studied. The BRM-334 exhibited the highest number of pods per/ plant, number of grains per pods, 1000 grain weight, grain yield per plot and final yield also as well as it got maturity in minimum days as compared to other strains.
