Ethyl methanesulfonate induced variation in qualitative and quantitative characters of roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) (Malvaceae)


Revista Brasileira de Genetica 16(2): 381-391
Ethyl methanesulfonate induced variation in qualitative and quantitative characters of roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) (Malvaceae)
Seeds of roselle cultivars Jamaican Red (JR) and Jamaican Green (JG) were presoaked for four hours in distilled water and treated with 0.0, 0.4, 0.8 and 1.2% ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) for 8 h and 0.0, 0.6 and 0.8% EMS for 6 h, respectively, in order to induce variation in qualitative and quantitative characters. In the M1 generation, germination and survival percentage of both cultivars decreased, whereas semi-sterility increased with the increase in EMS concentration.
