The present study is an effort where a comparatively safe pesticide Quinalophos was tested for its effects on the mitosis of Pearl Millet to enact similar conditions which roots face when excess pesticides leach into the soil. Various abnormalities were encountered in the mitosis alongwith chromosomal aberrations. The paper discusses the mode of action and reasons for the abnormalities.

Key words : Chromosomal abnormalities, Pennisetum, Pesticide, Quinalophos.
