Kernel phenotypes of 12 maize (Zea mays L.) mutants and 82 two-, three-, and four-gene combinations are presented. These gene mutations are amylose-extender, brittle-1, brittle-2, dull, floury-1, horny, opaque-2, shrunken-1, shrunken-2, sugary-1, sugary-2, and waxy. Specific gene interactions are described. Knowledge of these interactions permits efficient development of multiple gene combinations.
