Abstract:
In the present investigation, two chickpea genotypes IC265291(V1) and IC265298 (V2) were collected from NBPGR, New Delhi to study the mutagenic effect of EMS (Ethyl Methyl Sulfonate) on the quantitative traits. The chickpea seeds were treated with different (0.1% to 0.6%) concentrations of chemical mutagen EMS and the seeds were sown in the field at CPMB (Centre for Plant Molecular Biology), Osmania University, Hyderabad. The ANOVA results revealed that the difference is highly significant due to the treatment of all the characters indicating that there is a considerable amount of genetic variability in the genotypes. In between the two genotypes (IC265291 & IC265298), the quantitative traits were found to be higher in the genotype IC265298 than IC265291 and it is also evident from the study that when the concentration of EMS increased, the mean values of all the quantitative traits decreased. It is observed that the seeds treated with 0.1% EMS and 0.2% EMS concentrations showed the highest mean values for quantitative characters under consideration. These mutant varieties can be further utilized in chickpea crop improvement programs.
