Induced Mutability Studies for Yield and Yield Related Characters in Three Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Varieties

Muhammad Mohibullah Khan, Rahm Din, Muhammad Qasim, Shah Jehan and Malik Muhammad Iqbal


Various doses of gamma irradiation i.e 10, 20, 30 and 35 krad were applied to the seeds of three wheat varieties namely Inqilab-91, Daman-98 and Raj. High reduction in the mean values for all the characters were obtained in response to higher doses of gamma rays (30 and 35 krad,). It was concluded from this study that the higher doses reduced mean values for majority of characters studied while lower dose of 10 krad had beneficial effect on most of the parameters. All the three varieties in this research project responded differently to radiation doses for various plant characteristics.
