GAMMA-RAY INDUCED FEMALE MUTATION IN CASTOR

Published on

Three female mutants in castor (Ricinus communis L.) were obtained from 100 to 125 kR
gamma-rays treated M2 population. The racemes of these mutants bore only pistillate
flowers. This character is monogenic, recessive and these mutants can be used for large
scale hybrid seed production.
 

Keywords: Induced mutation, castor.
