Abstract:

Induced mutations have proven flexible, workable and ready to use on any crop. In addition, it is a low-cost technology that has the ability to address current challenges in agriculture. The breeding of new mutant varieties with a higher yield potential will be the driving force to meet the challenges of the 21st century. High-yielding mutants were isolated from the M3 progeny of linseed varieties Indira Alsi and NL-115 treated with 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5 % EMS. Data on various quantitative traits, such as plant height, number of primary branches per plant, number of secondary branches per plant, number of capsules per plant, number of seeds per capsules, 1000-seed weight (g), seed yield (g) per plant, were recorded for 10 superior mutants in the M3 generation. The mutants were morphologically quite distinct, as compared to the control and to each other. The most notable change was increase in number of secondary branches and capsule numbers of these mutants, giving them high yield as compared to control. Mean performance of different quantitative traits was significantly better among the mutants as compared to the control, with a few exceptions.
