The present investigations on monitoring, screening and assessment of population of pulse beetle on mungbean under free choice conditions of twenty three genotypes of mungbean obtained maximum number of eggs (2.2 grain-1) of pulse beetle on genotype ML-818 and minimum (0.80 grain-1) on COGG-912. The survival percentage was also found highest on ML-818 (77.42%) and lowest in COGG-912 (41.60%). Minimum seed damage was recorded on COGG-912(53.33%) while maximum in ML-818 (96.66%). This resulted minimum per cent weight loss in COGG-912 (43.71%) while maximum in ML-818(66.91%). Least number of adults of pulse beetle were attracted towards COGG-912 (1.0%) while highest in Market Sample (9.0%). The susceptibility index was found highest in ML-818 (10.57%) and lowest in COGG-912 (3.67%). The maximum germination was found in COGG-912 (43.67%) while minimum in ML-818(24.66%), sixty days after release. The five genotypes viz., COGG-912, T-44, MH 2-15, KM-2262 and KM-2266 registered promising on the basis of eggs laid, survival %, mean developmental period and susceptible index in free choice test were re-evaluated by no choice test.
