Spin dynamics of the square lattice Heisenberg antiferromagnet, Ba$$_2$$MnGe$$_2$$O$$_7$$, is studied by a combination of bulk measurements, neutron diffraction, and inelastic neutron-scattering techniques. Easy plane type antiferromagnetic order is identified at T$$leq$$4.0 K. The exchange interactions are estimated as $$J_1$$ = 27.8(3) $$mu$$eV and$$J_2$$ = 1.0(1) $$mu$$eV, and the saturation field $$H$$$$_{rm C}$$ is 9.75 T. Magnetic excitation measurements with high experimental resolution setup by triple axis neutron spectrometer reveals the instability of one magnon excitation in the field range of 0.7$$H$$$$_{rm C}$$ $$_sim^{<}$$ $$H$$ $$_sim^{<}$$ 0.85$$H$$$$_{rm C}$$.
