Induction of mutation through mutagens in gladiolus (Gladiolus hybridus) CV. American beauty


Author(s): Sudha Patil, SL Chawla and Parmeshvari Chaudhary

Abstract: The present investigation on “Induction of mutation through mutagens in gladiolus (Gladiolus hybridus) CV. American Beauty” was carried out at Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat). Corms were treated with different doses of gamma rays (5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 kR), EMS (0.5%, 1.0% and 1.5%) and DES (0.5%, 1.0% and 1.5%). Different vegetative, floral and yield characters were taken under study. Among all mutagenic treatments, early sprouting (10.40 days) and flowering (72.73 days) with maximum number of sprouts (2.27), plant height (58.86 cm), number of leaves (12.87), leaf area (33.90 cm2), number of florets per spike (11.60), spike length (77.46 cm), floret size (11.04 cm), blooming period (11.27 days), number of spikes per plant (2.13) and number of corms (1.53) was recorded in treatment T7 i.e. EMS @ 0.5%. Higher doses of all mutagens adversely affected growth, flowering and yield parameters of gladiolus.
