Mutation breeders often estimate an irradiation dose which causes a specified reduction in growth of a biological material. In this paper, we estimate the growth reduction dose (GRD) and its confidence interval, when the dose‐response relationship is of a general polynomial form. We make a realistic assumption that the response at the control dose is a random variable. We compare the estimates, standard error and confidence intervals of GRD with those obtained under a situation where response at control dose is a known constant. We illustrate the procedure with data on the effect of gamma irradiation and Ethylmethane sulphate on shoot lengths of chickpea genotypes.
