Abstract The effect of Eucalyptus leaf litter on growth and root nodulation of mung bean (Vigna radiata {L.} R. Wilczek) was studied in pot experiment under natural conditions. There were five Eucalyptus litter treatments (0%, 8%, 16%, 24%, and 32% on v/v basis) applied in garden soil. The experiment was set up in completely randomized design with nine replicates for each treatment at each harvest. The four harvests were taken at the following developmental/physiological stages: start of flowering, start of pod formation, middle of pod formation, and seed maturity. A number of growth parameters were used to collect data at each harvest. The data was subjected to statistical analysis by applying Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and the means were compared by Duncans Multiple Range Test (DMRT). The Eucalyptus litter treatments generally showed adverse effect on various parameters of vegetative growth, reproductive growth and root nodulation of mung bean. The adverse effect increased with increasing Eucalyptus litter treatments. The results highlighted negative effect of Eucalyptus plantation on the growth and yield of mung bean.
