Abstract:

Induced mutations not only alter the plant genome but also affect the cellular component which leads to changes in seed germination to maturity traits. The aim of the present study was to investigate the somatic effect of chemical mutagen Ethyl Methane Sulphonate (EMS) on seed germination, shoot length, root length, plant photosynthetic pigments and nine yield attributing traits of two white seeded sesame varieties. Dose dependent negative linear effect was observed in seed germination, shoot and root length, plant pigments and some biometrical traits. Number of branches per plant, number of capsules in primary branch and number of capsules in secondary branch showed nonlinear effect on EMS. Based on germination, SVPR 1 was found to be more sensitive to EMS than VRI 3 but for seedling traits reverse case was observed. The highest mean significant yield was observed for SVPR 1 than VRI 3.
