Effect of Gamma Rays in Induced Morphological Mutants on M2 Generation of Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) Var K1

Full Text PDF


The present study was carried out to induce morphological mutation in chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) var k1. The seeds were subjected to different treatment levels of gamma rays are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70Kr along with control. The treated and untreated seeds were raised in a randomized block design to observe the different morphological characters in M2 generation. Several unique and interesting mutants were isolated in this investigation, these independent mutants have differ from control, the most distinct mutants included tall, dwarf, bushy, flower, sterile and pod mutant, was observed in M2 generation.
