Extensive selection on the basis of laboratory analyses is necessary when transferring high amylose characters from source stocks into agronomically sound amylomaize hybrids. The effects of various gene combinations on the amylose-amylopectin ratio of corn starch are discussed. Amylose content is shown to be influenced considerably by modifying factors interacting within the various endosperm genotypes.
