Quantitative estimation of total protein, fatty oil and soluble sugar content in different mutant plant types of Sesamum indicum L

Author(s):

Abstract:
Quantitative estimation of protein, fatty oil and soluble sugar content is made in control and 21 different true breeding viable macromutant (induced by chemical mutagenesis) lines of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) at M4 generation. Results indicate that thick leaf mutant shows superiority over control for all the traits under study but many of them show increased content of protein, fatty oil and soluble sugar content than control. Some of the true breeding macromutants closely correspond to the ideotype being looked for in the species. More desirable plant types may be raised after intercrossing, followed by selection for increased benefits in the long run.
