Abstract

Black gram (Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper) variety TNAU (Bg) CO 6 was exposed to varying doses of gamma rays to study their effect on various characters like seed germination and seedling survival, plant height at 30th day and at maturity, pollen and seed fertility. In M1 generation the results revealed that there was more reduction at higher doses compared to lower doses for all the characters studied. The higher doses of gamma rays lead to lethal injury and sterility. Effects on these traits have been attributed to the physiological disturbance or chromosomal damage of the cells caused by the gamma rays. The results of the present study clearly indicate that different doses of gamma rays can be effectively utilized to create variability for various quantitative traits in black gram.
