Example text

Iv) Elongated rachis: The mutants were characterized by elongated rachis with reduced number of leaves. These mutants were isolated at lower doses of mutagens in both varieties (Fig. 4-7). 46 Morphological Mutations Fig. 3: Morphological mutants (mutants with altered growth habit): 1. Control; 2. Axillary branched mutant; 3. One sided branching mutant; 4. Spreading mutant (Photographs by M I Kozgar) IV. Mutants with altered flower characters (i) Double flower mutants: These mutants were characterized by the presence of two flowers borne on the same stalk (peduncle) in contrast to one in control.

It seems that in addition to chromosomal aberrations, some genic and physiological changes might have caused sterility. The percentage of pollen sterility was relatively lower in M2 than in M1 generation, indicating that some sort of recovery mechanism must be operating in the intervening period. The survival of plants decreased in the mutagenic treatments in both the varieties of chickpea, however, there was no direct relationship between the dose of mutagens and the survival. , 2006) and Glycine max (Manjaya, 2009).

Seed size was smaller and they were dark in colour. They appeared at higher doses of the mutagens in both varieties (Fig. 4-2). (iii) Altered leaf architecture mutants: Mutant plants were characterized by vast variation in the leaf margins and apices. Variations in the plant heights were also noticed and such mutants were 5-7 cm shorter than the control plants. These mutants were isolated in almost all the mutagenic treatments (Figs. 4-5). (iv) Elongated rachis: The mutants were characterized by elongated rachis with reduced number of leaves.
