Comparative Study, Mungbean Taho, Cost Analysis, Return Investment


Due to the adaptability of the crop to various cropping environment, crop diversification particularly in rice and cornbased areas has therefore been encouraged and practiced through adoption of mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilzeck)
more popularly known as munggo and mung in other countries as a rotating crop and intercrop. What made the crop
very fitted for diversification is due to its nitrogen-fixing ability, short maturity and drought tolerance which help
farmers maximize utilization of their land, improve soil fertility and optimize farm productivity (CVARRD, 2009).
The researchers employed Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with four (4) treatments to determine which
of the two varieties of Munggo; PSBMg2 (VC3876) or locally known as “kusapo” and NSIC Mg12 or locally known
as “Siling” is more acceptable in making Taho. The result showed that the appearance of the four preparations of
mungbean Taho (Treatments 1, 2, 3, and 4) were “liked moderately” with means ranging from 6.54 to 7.36. A
comparison of means showed that among the treatment groups, T1 is statistically more acceptable than T2 and T3.
The acceptability of T2 in terms of Appearance is significantly higher than T3 and T4. In like manner, T3 is
significantly better in appearance. The cost and analysis revealed that T1 can give 80.18% Return on Investment
compared to T2 with 66.67% both used kusapo variety. On the other hand, T3 can give 86.91% Return on Investment
compared to T4 with 73.915% both used Siling variety of mungbean
