Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench, commonly known as ‘ladies finger’ or ‘bhindi’ is an economically important common vegetable crop cultivated throughout the tropical and warm temperate regions of the world. Induced mutation is highly effective in enhancing natural genetic resources and has been used in developing improved cultivars. The effect of gamma irradiation on various morphological and yield attributing characters in M2 generation were studied. In M2 generation, the resulted plants of 400Gy irradiated plants showed different growth inducing morphological changes and yield attributing characters such as plant height, internode length, number of leaves/plant, number of fruits/plant and fruit characteristics such as length, girth, weight, number of seeds/ fruits and weight of 100 seeds etc and disease scoring of Yellow Vein Mosaic. The occurrence of induced growth in the morphology of the plants also increased in the metabolic activities of the plants which induce the yield parameters. In 400Gy irradiated M2 generation plants, these changes exceeded to that of control plants also.

Keywords: Abelmoschus esculentus, Gamma rays, M2 generation.
