The study was conducted to examine the present status of summer mungbean cultivation in Punjab state. The findings revealed that 54.29 percent of the farmers had started cultivation of summer mungbean from 0.25–2.50 acres area. Almost, half of the farmers followed summer mungbean-basmati-rice wheat rotation as basmati rice being short duration crop and its late planting in fields enable the growers to have enough time to produce summer mungbean. A large majority of the farmers (81.43 percent) cultivated this crop on commercial scale to earn an income, while most of them were engaged in cleaning and drying of the summer mungbean so as to add value to it. The sample summer mungbean growers fetched a gross return to the tune of ‘20905.50 per acre. The return over variable cost was computed to a tune of ‘14042.25 per acre.
