Mutagenic effectiveness and efficiency of gamma rays, EMS and their combined treatments were studied in the genotype of cowpea variety CO7. The mutagenic treatments seeds were tested for lethal dose 50 percent for all mutagens, separately and the dose at which 50 percent of the seed germination was considered as LD values. Gamma rays, EMS and combined mutagens are produced a high frequency as well as a wide 50 spectrum of mutation. The frequency of mutation was more in combined treatments than… CONTINUE READING
