Solution

Mutation can be induced artificially through chemicals as well as through gamma radiations.
The plants with desirable mutations can be selected and chosen as a source for breeding. This is called mutation breeding. This procedure has helped mung bean production by providing resistance against yellow mosaic virus and powdery mildew (fungal disease).
