ASSESSMENT OF GAMMA INDUCED GENETIC DIVERGENCE IN M2 GENERATION OF SOYBEAN

Published on

Genetic diversity in twentyfour M2 treatments resulted from 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 kR gamma
irradiated soybean varieties was studied. These treatments were grouped into six different
clusters. Genetic diversity was independent of varieties and doses of gamma rays.
Sufficient amount of variability due to induced mutations for different polygenic
characters over the parentvariety was observed in M2 families. Itformed basis for restricted
desirable selections.
