The chemically treated seeds with Ethyl Methane Sulphonate (EMS), Sodium Azide (SA) and Gamma Irradiated seeds with Co60 from BARC, Mumbai were used for the Mutagenic studies in Vigna radiata Cultivar-Naval. The seeds were treated with different doses with time intervals, then sowed in the field along with control to study seedling height, seedling injury, pollen sterility, lethality and plant survival at maturity in M1 generation. The experiment was conducted at New Arts, Commerce and Science College Ahmednagar, MS, India for the year June 2018–2019. The sensitivity of the mutagens was studied on parameters. The results were obtained significantly. The higher dose of treatment showed maximum seedling injury and lethality in each mutagenic treatment compared to control.
