Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out on gladiolus with three cultivars which was irradiated with 15, 30, 45, and 60 Gy of gamma radiation at Department of Nuclear Agriculture and Biotechnology Division (NABTD), BARC, Trombey, Mumbai during November 2016 and field evaluation was carried out at Instruction Farm Department of Floriculture and landscape architecture, IGKV, Raipur. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with fifteen treatments replicated three times. Results indicated that the mutagenic treatments at lower doses had significant stimulative effect on some parameters i.e., sprouting percentage, days taken to sprouting, spike initiation, opening of first florets whereas most of the morphological parameters showed a decrease from desired levels i.e., survival rate, plant height and number of leaves. Higher doses gamma rays were detrimental for vegetative characters.
