Effect of induced physical and chemical mutagenesis on the cytological
behaviour of Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)

  • 1, ,

Chemical mutagens are used to induce resistance against harmful pathogens in various susceptible crops to improve their
yield and quality. A comparative study on the cytological and developmental effects on EMS (Ethyl Methane Sulphonate)
and Gamma rays on meiotic features was made. Studies were undertaken in M3 generation Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench var
of CSV-23.

Keywords: EMS, Gamma rays, Mitotic aberrations, M3 generation Sorghum bicolor,,
