M1 generation of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merill] was raised by treating the dormant seeds of variety of MAUS-71 and JS-335 with varied concentration of chemical mutagen (EMS) and physical mutagen (Gamma rays). A dose dependant decrease was noticed in most of the characters in M1 generation. The results indicated that the reduction in germination percent over control was noticed in all mutagenic treatments in both the cultivars, while increased pollen sterility was associated with corresponding increases in dose/ concentration of mutagens. Results indicate that higher doses were more effective.
