A statistical analysis of variation in plant height was made of material from the sorghum cross Double Dwarf White Sooner Milo ✕ Durra P. I. 54484. The data indicated segregation of at least four independent genes with unequal effects. Significant fixable as well as environmental variation was found. Dominance was indicated but was not complete. Results and conclusions in this study derived by the method described by Mather were in close agreement with those of Quinby and Karper who used essentially Mendelian procedures.
