Abstract: An investigation was carried out to elicit information on genetic variability and for yield and its component traits in 34 mutants of Morden and 32 mutants of DSF 15B in M3 generation progenies of sunflower along with control. Most of the characters exhibited moderate to high variability. All the characters exhibited moderate to high heritability in mutants.
