One hundred genotypes of mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek) were screened against MYMV during kharif season under in vitro conditions at PARC Research and Training Station, College of Agriculture, B.Z., University, Multan. The germplasm was ranked into tolerant and susceptible depending upon severity of disease. The diversified response of mungbean genotypes to MYMV showed that 35 genotypes were exposed to be tolerant while moderately tolerant (MT) rank included 17 genotypes and 10 genotypes were moderately susceptible (MS) showing infection of MYMV. Six genotypes were designated as susceptible ones and the remaining eight were highly susceptible indicating mungbean yellow mosaic virus (MYMV).
