    Induced Mutations In Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek

    Amol Chandrakant Vikhe* and Janardhan Nehul

    In present investigation an attempt was made to induce mutation with mutagens namely Ethyl Methane Sulphonate (EMS), Sodium azide (SA) and Gamma Radiation (GR)were studied in M2 generation of Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek Cultivar-Naval to study different morphological mutations. The results indicated induction of a wide spectrum of morphological mutations in cultivar-Naval. The frequency of morphological mutations was variated and significant in mutagenic treatments. The cultivar-Naval was found to be more sensitive to EMS, SA and GR.

    Studies on Effect of Salinity Stress on Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek Cultivar, Naval

    Amol Chandrakant Vikhe* and Janardhan Nehul

    (Vigna radiata L.) Wilczek is short duration crop cultivated over world in Kharif, Rabi and Summer season. Area under mung bean cultivation is increased in india since 2019-2021. Mung bean crop is affected by biotic and abiotic factors such as salinity, water logging and drought in kharif, rabi and summer season. Salinity of the soil is abiotic the main responsible factor which reduces the seed germination, plant growth and crop yield. The salinity stress was studied in this experiment on isolated mutants from Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek cultivar- Naval. The isolated mutants from mutagenic treatments of EMS, SA and Gamma radiation in M3 generation were studied. The research experiment was carried out in New Arts, Commerce and Science college Ahmednagar (MS, India 2021). The selected mutants from M3 generation were B8, B13, B19 and B21 from EMS-15, 20mM; and SA-2, 2mM respectively. The mutants were with high yield and biochemically diverse from control Cultivar-Naval. These mutants were subjected to salinity stress using Sodium chloride. Different concentrations of NaCl were used such as, NaCl- 0, 200, 225, 250 and 300 mM. The experiment was conducted in laboratory as well as in the field condition. These Mutants were tested for seed germination, vigour, electrical conductivity, seed yield. These mutants showed significant variations in said parameters as compared to control Cultivar-Naval.

    Effect of Plant Extracts on Seed Borne Mycoflora in Zea mays L.

    Balasaheb Neel, Janardhan Nehul and Amol Chandrakant Vikhe*

    Aqueous extract of leaves of Azadirachta indica Juss., Datura metal L., Parthenium hysterophorous L., Vitex negundo L., were evaluated for the control of fungi on seeds of maize (Zea mays L.). The seeds were soaked in 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% for 48 hours. All the plant extract had significant inhibitory growth effect on the fungal pathogen. Extract of Azadirachta indica Juss., Datura metal L., Parthenium hysterophorous L. and Vitex negundo L was recorded inhibitory to all recorded fungi at 75% and 100% concentration. Azadirachta indica Juss., Datura metal L and Vitex negundo was more effective than Parthenium hysterophorous plant extract and compared to control of the pathogen.
