Abstract

Low ODAP somaclones from root and internode explants were evaluated for physiological and biochemical parameters. Considerable variation was observed in relation to leaf width, leaf length, internodal length and leaf area. All the somaclones during development had substantially lower ODAP content in leaves compared to parent P 24. Amongst somaclones, Bio R 202 had the maximum leaf area, biomass as well as photosynthetic rate. Harvest index and seed yield were highest in Biol 222 whereas ODAP content was the least in it.
