The effects of carrot root extract were investigated on meristematic cells of the roots of A. cepa. The growing roots of A.cepa were treated with five concentrations (100%, 75%, 50%, 25% and 10%) of the carrot root extract for 2, 4 and 6 hours respectively. The results showed that the low concentrations of the carrot root extract enhanced the mitotic activity but high concentrations were slightly mitodepressive in nature and induced some chromosomal abnormalities too like condensation of chromosomes, disturbed metaphases, scattered metaphases, chromatid separation, bridge formation, extrusion and disturbed polarity. It was concluded that carrot root extract was mitotic stimulator in nature but showed slight impact on chromosomal behavior.
