Abstract:

A field trial was conducted to study the effect of Gamma Radiation, EMS and Colchicine on Sprouting percentage in garlic variety ‘Buldhana local’. The experiment was carried out at Vegetable Instructional farm, Department of Horticulture, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (M.S.) during Rabi season in the year 2017-2018. It was laid out in Randomized Block Design. The garlic cloves were treated with five levels of gamma radiation (2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 Gy), EMS (0.45%, 0.55%, 0.65%, 0.75% and 0.85 %) and Colchicine (0.08%, 0.10 % and 0.12%) for 12 hrs. The study revealed that sprouting percentage decreased with increasing dose of mutagens.
