Dry seeds of urdbean (Vigna mungo L. Hepper) varieties PU-19 and PU-35 were treated with
10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 kR gamma rays doses. For chemical mutagenesis presoaked seeds of
these two cultivars were treated with 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4% EMS solutions and 0.005, 0.01,
0.02, 0.03 and 0.04% dES solutions separately. A number of various types of mutants for pod and
maturity characteristics were induced in M2 generation. Many mutants showed significant improvement in yield and other yield components as compared to their parents.
