Induced mutations affecting quantitative characters in mungbean

Khan Samiullah, Wani Mohd. Rafiq

Mutation Breeding Laboratory, Department of Botany, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh-202 002, India.


An attempt has been made to evaluate quantitative characters viz., fertile branches per plant, pods per plant and total plant yield in M2 and M3 generations following mutagenesis with EMS (ethylmethane sulphonate) and SA (sodium azide) in mungbean {Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek} var. Pusa Baisakhi. The number of fertile branches per plant, pods per plant and yield increased significantly after mutagenic treatments. The induced genetic variability was higher in treated populations than the control.
