Abstract: 

In this investigation effect of neutron radiation (Fast and Thermal Neutron) on root length, leaf surface, dry weight and chlorophyll of alfalfa were studied. Irradiation of both type of neutron (Fast and Thermal) for 120, 180 and 360 min resulted in different effects on growth parameters. Fast radiation had significant effects on chlorophyll and dry weight, while leaf area and root length were affected by thermal radiation. As a general conclusion, types of irradiation and duration of irradiation have different effects on growth parameters.
