Abstract:

To assess the effect of gamma rays and EMS (Ethyl methane sulfonate) application on chilli var. Kashi Anmol, an experiment was conducted during winters of 2017-18 at Agricultural Research Farm, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. The experimental design was randomized block design and replicated thrice. Treatments include one control, five doses of gamma rays (10 kR, 20 kR, 30 kR, 40 kR and 50 kR), five doses of EMS (10 mM, 20 mM, 30 mM, 40 mM and 50 mM) and their combinations (gamma rays 10 kR + 20 mM EMS, gamma rays 20 kR + 20 mM EMS, gamma rays 30 kR + 20 mM EMS, gamma rays 40 kR + 20 mM EMS and gamma rays 50 kR + 20 mM EMS). There was substantial reduction in seed germination percentage, seedling height, pollen fertility, ovule fertility and plant survival with an increase in doses of gamma rays, EMS and their combination. The EMS was observed more effective mutagen than gamma rays and their combinations even more.
