Mung beans are the shorter season and more determinate cousin to cowpeas. Equally drought and heat tolerant, but with smaller seed size, mungs are a great warm season legume planted later in the season (after wheat harvest) when growing season is limited. Mostly upright and slightly spreading, this low water use plant is a good addition to grazing mixes with crude protein ranging from 16-22%.
