INHERITANCE OF SOME INDUCED MUTANT CHARACTERS IN JUTE (CORCHORUS OLITORIUS L.)

Published on

Induced mutant characters of jute (Corchorus olitorius L.) such as, chlorina, virescent,
yellow, patchy albino leaf colour; waxy leaf surface; ribbon, cordate, trifid leaf forms;
distant and extreme leaf serration; dwarf, stiff, lazy stem, drooping top, bushy stem, white
stem; foliaceous stipule; white flower and round pod, were all monogenic recessive in
nature. The Fz generation of their crosses with the genotypes having wild type characters
segregated into 3:1 ratio for each mutant characters. Gene symbols for these characters are
proposed. No linkage could be detected amongst these mutants.
 

Keywords: Corchorus olitorius, mutant, inheritance, gene symbols.
