Abstract:

The pure, healthy and dry seeds of four mungbean varieties i.e., Meha, K 851, GM 3 and GM 4 were irradiated with different doses of gamma rays (400, 500 and 600 Gy) for study the effect on seed germination and seedling vigour such as germination per cent, shoot length (cm), root length (cm), fresh weight (g) and dry weight (g). For LD50 recorded near to the 600 Gy gamma rays as per survival per cent in the all four mungbean varieties. The GM 4 was observed more sensitive, whereas, Meha was recorded more resistance for most of all traits. The present results clearly indicated that different doses of gamma rays can be effectively utilized to create variability for different quantitative characters in all the four varieties.
