Isolation and inheritance of suborbicular and lupinus leaflet mutants in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)

Published on

Leaflet shape is described as cuneate, elliptic,
suborbicular, orbicular, ovate, oblong and lanceolate in
the descriptors for groundnut [1]. In our induced
mutagenesis study, two mutants having suborbicular
leaflets (TGM 38) and lupinus leaflets (TGM 61) were
isolated after gamma ray irradiation of cultivar ‘TAG 24’
[2]. The inheritance pattern of suborbicular leaflet and
lupinus leaflet has not been reported yet. In this
communication, isolation of two mutants having
suborbicular and lupinus leaflets in groundnut and their
inheritance is reported.
