The purpose of this study is to induce mutations of local varieties of rice (Ase Banda) with gamma ray irradiation to obtain early duration and high yield of local rice mutants. This study was designed using randomized block design (RAK) in one factor. The factor is the level of irradiation done without radiation (R0) as a control group, radiation at 200 Gray (R1) and radiation with 300 Gray (R2). Each treatment was repeated three (3) times using 50 plants for each treatment. The result of this research showed that local rice at either 200 Gray of radiation (R1) and 300 Gray (R2) obtained shorter plant height than those not in the radiation (R0). A number of tillers higher than those not in the radiation (R0) and the flowering dates obtained faster than the (R0). It is still expected that desired character of local rice mutant ‘Ase Banda’ to be used as an advanced breeding material.
