French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) belongs to the family Fabaceae. It is also known as rajmash, rajma (Hindi), haricot bean, kidney bean, common bean, snap bean or navy bean. It is also known as Ghewada in Marathi. It is native of South America Experimental genotype selected for the present investigation was French bean Phaseolus vulgaris L. The experimental seed material of French bean variety – Varun collected from Ganeshkhind, Dist: Pune, Maharashtra, India released by Mahatma Phule Agricultural University, Rahuri, Dist- Ahmednager Maharashtra, India. The fresh, aqueous solutions of the mutagen were prepared prior to treatments. The different concentrations used for the chemical mutagenic treatments were 0.1%, 0.15%, 0.20% and 0.25 of EMS. The seed samples were exposed to doses of 30kR, 40kR, 50kR and 60kR of Gamma rays. In the combination, Gamma rays and EMS were used like 30 kR+0.10%, 40 kR+0.15%, 50 kR+0.20% and 60 kR+0.25%. From each concentration/dose of mutagen about 25 plants from the progeny were randomly selected, harvested and collected seeds for further generations. The observations were recorded in M2, M3 and M4 generations. These five quantitative characters were recorded at the time of harvesting of plants. The data of quantitative characters like plant height, number of pods per plant, length of pods, number of seeds per pod and weight of 100 seeds were studied.  

Keywords: French bean, Gamma rays,Ethyl Methanesulphonate (EMS), Heritability, Genetic advance.
