PERFORMANCE COMPARISON OF MICROMUTANT SELECTIONS OF GREEN GRAM (VIGNA RADIATA L. WILCZEK) IN ADVANCED MUTATION GENERATION FOR YIELD AND PHYSIOLOGICAL ATTRIBUTES

Published on

Perfonnance of ten green gram micromutant selections superior in yield atleast by 2O'r. to
their parent varieties AAU 34 and AAU 39, was assessed in M6 generation. Mutant MMl of
cv AAU 34 gave the highest seed and biological yield, had high leaf area and relative water
content of leaf at pod filling stage. The high seed yield of the mutant MMJ was due to high
harvest index combined with lowerbiological yield and lower leaf area. None of the AAU
39 micromutants had higher seed yield than the parent variety, possibly due to lower
biological yield inspite of its wide range of variation in biological yield and leaf area.
