Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to find the efficiency and effectiveness of various mutagenic treatments of gamma rays and EMS on cape gooseberry. Genetically pure, uniform and dry seeds of cape gooseberry were subjected to 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 kR doses of gamma rays and 0.02, 0.03, 0.04 and 0.05 M concentration of ethyl methane sulfonate along with control. Chlorophyll mutation, biological damages and viable mutant frequency was recorded in M1 and M2 generation. Highest mutation frequency 3.17% was observed in 0.02 M EMS followed by 0.03 M EMS 2.42% and the effectiveness of EMS treatments ranged from 1.09 to 4.55 and 2 kR and 0.02 M EMS were the most efficient treatments. The higher doses of both mutagen lead to lethal injury and sterility.
