This study was conducted in gedarif research station farm for two seasons in 2013 and 2014. The objective was to determine optimum seed rate and time of harvesting mungbean for green forage and hay under rain fed conditions. The results showed different significant in three stage of cutting and three seed rate at different parameter as indicated by plant height, plant number, branch number, leave number and dry weight. The result showed highly significant between vegetative and boding stage. In the same season (2013) and (2014), also highly significant between the boding stage in seed rate tow and all stage of seed rate for the both season (2013) and (2014). The study concluded that, cutting stage can be used as indicators for plant yield and biomass as proved in the crop of the study. The study recommended that boding cutting stage can be used as practical mean to assess utilization level as expressed by growth performance indicators including dry matter and biomass from guar forage crop.
