Abstract

Mungbean is a nutritious grain legume (pulse crop) and sensitive to waterlogging. Mungbean production is affected by waterlogging caused by frequent extreme rainfall events. This thesis focuses on the waterlogging tolerance of mungbean mini-core germplasm collection at germination and seedling stages. Key objectives were to determine the effect of waterlogging duration, investigate phenotypic variation and genetic control of waterlogging-tolerance traits, and understand the genetic basis of waterlogging-tolerance through genome-wide analysis focusing on associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms and tolerance traits. This thesis provides insight into the significance of waterlogging-tolerance traits in mungbean and genomic regions of candidate genes.
