Abstract:

In the present studies, selected different seven morphological mutants in M4 generation induced through Gamma rays, EMS and Combination of both mutagens for their better performance. They were estimated for chlorophyll content, leaf protein and seed protein. The estimated values of all recorded mutants ranged from 1.34 to 2.44 mg/gm. The maximum amount of total chlorophyll content 2.44 mg/gm estimated in late flowering mutant, while the minimum amount of total chlorophyll content 1.47 mg/gm. was estimated in sterile mutant. The estimated values of leaf protein content for all observed mutants were ranged from 3.32% to 4.81 %. The maximum estimated amount of total leaf protein content was 4.81% in robust mutant, while the minimum estimated amount of total leaf protein content 3.32 % was estimated in dwarf mutant. The estimated values of seed protein content for all studied mutants were ranged from 25.60 %to 20.8 %. The maximum estimated amount of total leaf protein content was 25.60% in robust mutant, while the minimum estimated amount of total leaf protein content 20.8 % was estimated in late flowering mutants.
