C2 seeds of autotetraploids (colchicine-induced) of two diverse genotypes, T 163 and 5064-S, of pea (Pisum sativum L.) and their corresponding diploids were irradiated with 10 kR gamma-ray.Autotetraploids showed high seed-sterility as compared to diploids.Seed fertility increased in M2 as compared to M1.Both quadrivalent and bivalent frequancies desreased in the M1 generation of autotetraploids in relation to their respective controls.However, a positive shift in the mean bivalent formation was noted at the cost of other configurations in C3-M2 with respect to C2-M1 and varied with the genotype.In the M2 generation of autotetraploic, the variability was relatively higher for the number of pods per plnt and seed yield per plant.Although the mean values for pods per plant, number of seeds per plant and seed yield per plant remained more or less parallel in autotetraloids in M1 and M2 generations, there was an increase in the upper range limit probably due to micromutation for these characters in M2.
