Systematic mutation breeding research in India was started at Ranchi Agricultural College, Kanke, Bihar, India, around 1971 by Haque and his co-workers. Choudhary (1972) studied induced polygenic variability in the R-II generation in the variety of 'Sepaya Black' of soybean. Choudhary (1972) reported that 10 Kr radiation treatment of gamma rays was effective in shifting the mean values in positive direction for various quantitative characters including seed yield.
