The resistant reaction to cucumber mosaic virus, CMV-M, infection in mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) strain PI 271401, in crosses with susceptible strains PI 201868 and PI 368307, was conditioned by a single dominant gene designated Cmm. The Cmm locus was not linked with loci controlling color of seed texture layer or color of seed coat. Seed yields of CMV-M susceptible F2 plants in the field were reduced by more than 50% compared to resistant plants.
