The mutagenic effectiveness is a measure of factor mutations induced by a unit dose of mutagen. In M2 generation of French bean after Gamma rays treatment, the numerical value of effectiveness gradually decreased with increases in the dose of the mutagen. The range for Gamma rays treatment was 0.09 to 0.099.Similar trend was observed for EMS treatment. It was ranged from 6.86 to 9.8 in EMS treatment and in cases of Combination treatment the range was 0.12 to 0.34.Combination of lower dose of Gamma ray and EMS was found to be more effective. The value of efficiency decreased as there were increases in doses of Gamma rays treatments. It was ranged from 0.29 to 0.45. In EMS treatments, the range was 0.36 to 0.45. The efficiency in relation to pollen sterility varied from 0.36 to 0.40 in case of Combination treatments.
