Factors that can affect the germination of mung bean seeds include a lack of water, a lack of favorable temperature, infertile soil, a lack of fertilization and a lack of light. Seeds do not germinate if planted in such conditions.

The conditions necessary for germination of any seed include soil, water, light and a favorable temperature. A lack of any one of these conditions can cause the seed not to germinate. When planting mung bean seeds, adequate site selection and preparation of soil is important. Mung bean seeds perform well in a fertile soil with a pH between 6.2 and 7.2.
