Inheritance and Linkage of A Virescens and A Chlorina in Beta vulgaris L.1

  1. J. R. Stander and
  2. J. C. Theurer2



Inheritance and linkage relationships were studied for a chlorina and a virescens in sugarbeets, Beta vulgaris L. The virescens differed from the types previously reported as to the color of the affected leaves and the time required to develop normal pigmentation. It was conditioned by a simple recessive gene designated vi4. Chlorina from irradiated SLC 03 seed was the same as ch2 chlorina. Its inheritance as a simple recessive was confirmed. Linkage data showed independent inheritance for vi4 with factors for yellow pigmentation (Y), red pigmentation (R), annual growth habit (B), Mendelian sterility (a1), and ch2. The ch2 gene showed independence with R, a3, and vi4.
