EMS . The frequency of chlorophyll mutants expressed as the percent of M1 families segregating increased with the dose, but decreased when expressed as percent of M2 plants. Lower frequency of mutations were observed with EMS than with .gamma.-rays which may be due to poor plant survival in the former. The inbreds differed markedly in their response to the 2 mutagens with respect to the parameters studied.
