  Potassium application is related to mung bean plant growth, total biomass and crops yield. Different potassium level of soils is significantly affected the mung bean plants yield and yield contribution parameters. Maximum mung bean yield was 689 Kg/ha was obtained with the application of 85 Kg potash per hectare. Genotype HUM-1, and HUM-2 produced higher seed yield than JM - 72. The interactive effect of three mung bean varieties and their potassium level was found significant in different parameters. My studies were determining the effect of K on vegetative growth (plants dry weight and plant height), yield components (plant height, number of pods/plant, number of seeds/pod and seeds yield kg/hectare) produced seeds.
