Mungbeans Northern Region - GrowNotes™

Published: 22 Apr 2018

Mungbean is a summer pulse crop grown in Queensland and northern New South Wales. Taking about 100 days from sowing to harvest, mungbeans are a quick cash crop that fits nicely into the rotation for northern growers where they have two planting opportunities—spring and summer.

The four main classes of mungbean produced in Australia are large-seeded shiny green, small-seeded shiny green, large seeded dull green and black. Australia exports the highest quality large-seeded shiny green type mungbeans to Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East.
