A comparative study of morphological leaf mutations induced by the chemical mutagens like  Ethyl Methanesulphonate (10mM, 20mM, 30mM and  40mM ), Gamma radiations (100Gy,200Gy, 300Gy and 400Gy) and Gamma rays and Ethyl methanesulphonate combination treatment (100Gy + 40mM, 200Gy+ 30mM, 300Gy+ 20mM and  400Gy+ 10mM). The morphological leaf variations were observed in the M1 and M2 generations. The variation was observed in the leaf lamina, leaf size, leaf apices, leaf shape etc. The normal leaf was with the acute apex but variation observed in the leaf apex with emarginated, acuminate apex. The bifurcated leaf, and Aristate, Lunate, elongated leaf lamina was also observed in the M1 Generation.

Keywords: Lablab purpureus (L.), EMS,Gamma rays, Aristate, Lunate, Emarginated.
