Micromutational variability induced by EMS and DES in one variety each of rapeseed
(T5-29) and mustard (BM 35-9-9) was analysed for six polygenic traits of economic
importance. Variability considerably increased for siliquas/plant, siliqua length,
seedslsiliqua, and seed yield/plant. The rapeseed varietywas more responsive to mutagenic
treatment than the mustard variety, and DES increased micromutational variability to a
greater extent than EMS.
Keywords: Micromutation, variability, chemical mutagens, rapeseed, mustard.
