Inheritance of White Stripe and Rolled-Leaf Characteristics in Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench
- F. R. Miller2
The inheritance of two previously unreported traits of Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench was determined, and gene symbols were assigned. White stripe which develops on terminal leaves on a mutant in ‘Norkan’ (SA 357) was found to be controlled by a single recessive gene (ws ws). No striking indication of maternal cytoplasmic effects was detected. Rolled leaf, a condition typical of ‘Hoefling's Dwarf White Durra’ (SA 30), was also inherited as a single-gene recessive (rl rl), in crosses to SA 5330. The trait is modified by other genes, as shown in crosses to Tx3197.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
