The study was conducted during 2018-19 and 2019-20 at the laboratories of the Department of Seed Science & Technology, CSAU, Kanpur, to distinguish twenty One Indian mustard varieties/genotypes based on phenol & KOH chemical Tests phenol. On the basis of phenol test varieties/genotypes were categorized into three distinct groups viz., dark reddish brown (12 varieties), dark grey (7 varieties) and Dark red (2 varieties). KOH test grouped varieties/genotypes into three distinct groups i.e., dark brown (6 varieties), brown (6 varieties) and light brown (9 varieties).
