This is a study of variation induced in a few triticale types through the use of mutagens. The quantitative variation generated in the M2 generation was analysed statistically. Considerable genetic variation was induced by the mutagens. Nmu was a better mutagen than EMS. The induced variation was in both directions, although it extended more in the negative direction. The study indicates the potential usefulness of more extensive mutation breeding experiments aimed at the improvement of triticales for commercial use.
