Effects of organic and inorganic fertilizers on mungbean (Vigna radiata. (L.)) yield under arid climate were studied at adaptive research farm Karor and at farmer’s field during two kharif seasons of 2006 and 2007. In these experiments different combinations of organic and inorganic fertilizers were used for comparison. Experiments were laid in randomized complete block design with seven treatments. AZRI 2006, a promising variety of mung-bean (Vigna radiata (L.) for arid climate was used as a test variety. The results revealed that different combinations of organic and inorganic fertilizers significantly affected the grain yield. Maximum grain yield was obtained from the application of DAP at 124 Kg along with 10 tons ha-1 of poultry litter during both years, while application of DAP at 62 Kg and 10 tons of FYM ha-1 ranked second for grain yield.
