ABSTRACT

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The seeds of Withania somnifera, Dunal. Var. nagori were selected and used for following research. The healthy, dry and uniform seeds were treated with different doses of Gamma rays like 10kR, 20kR, 30kR and 40kR. Germination parameters like seed germination percentage, seedling height and seedling injury were studied. Germination percentage in control was 82 %. Germination percentage revealed gradual decrease from lower doses to higher doses in given treatments of Gamma rays. In case of seedling height there was dose dependent deduction after treatment of Gamma rays. In Gamma rays treated seeds seedling height was in the range 1.853 cm to 1.5743 cm and seedling injury varied from 2.4 % to 8.8%.  In conclusion it can be said that use of chemical mutagens has succeeded in inducing M1 Biological parameters. 

 

Key words: Ashwagandha, Mutation, seedling injury, Gamma ray.
