In the present investigation an attempt was made to induce mutation in two varieties of green gram by gamma irradiation and to study different morphological mutations. Results indicated induction of a wide spectrum of morphological mutations in two varieties. The frequency of morphological mutation increased with increase in dose of the radiation. Variety Sujata was found to be more sensitive to gamma irradiation in comparison to variety TARM 1.
