Inheritance of Awn Barbing in Two Barley Crosses1

  1. R. E. Atkins and
  2. K. J. Frey22



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.
