Radiation induced variability in the fertility of moth bean phaseolus acutifolius

Radiation induced variability in the fertility of moth bean phaseolus acutifolius

Indian Journal of Botany 3(1): 70-75

The extent and nature of .gamma.-radiation induced variability in the fertility of pollen and ovule were assessed in 'Jadia Moth' and 'RDM-90' moth bean (P. acutifolius Jacq.). A linear dependence of pollen and seed fertility on dosage was evident. Analysis of variance for pollen fertility indicated that the response of varieties to the action of mutagen was dependent on dose, genotype and their interaction. For seed fertility the various dosages had a significant effect on the varieties studied, but varietal dissimilarity was insignificant. There existed a highly positive and significant correlation between seed fertility and pollen fertility in all the treatments of the 2 varieties. The highest correlation was obtained at 40 kR in 'Jadia Moth', and at 60 kR in the 'RDM-90'. Correlation between pollen fertility and shoot length was positive and insignificant in all the treatments.
