The inheritance of awn barbing was studied using F2 and F3 populations of two barley crosses. A single dominant factor governed the expression of semi-smooth awns in one cross, while two dominant linked genes determined the segregation of rough and smooth awn types in the second cross. A recombination value of 26% was calculated for the linked genes operative in the second cross.
