Abstract: The local cultivar of proso millet viz. Vari No. 10 was selected. This cultivar was irradiated with six doses of gamma-rays viz., 20 krad, 30 krad, 40 krad, 50 krad, 60 krad and 70 krad for inducing variability. Among gamma irradiated population 20 KR dose was more effective in creating variability for most of the traits in Vari No. 10. A large number of useful mutants were observed and selected among different doses. Induced variability indicated that significant improvement can be achieved by appropriate selection methods.
