Therefore, artificial mutagenesis through irradiation or by use of different chemicals has become a very significant way for plant propagation in flower reproduction (Barakat and El-Sammak, 2011).Through induced mutation, a large number of plant varieties have been developed with improved traits such as high yield, early maturity, as well as high protein content, biotic and abiotic resistance.
