Abstract: Twenty mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek) genotypes were evaluated for the estimation of genetic variability parameters, Heritability and Genetic advance. The genotypes differed significantly for all characters. Higher GCV and PCV was observed for cluster per plant (31.33%;32.51%) followed by number of primary branches per plant (30.58%;32.95%), number of pods per plant (20.07%; 24.07%), plant height (12.10%; 12.74%), harvest index (11.89%;13.09), seed yield per plant (10.16%; 11.49%), seed per pod (8.33%; 12.44%) High heritability coupled with high expected genetic advance was observed in biological yield (99.00%; 7.59%) indicating the impact of additive gene expression.
