To maize geneticists:-
We are including in this report an inventory of all maize characters whose description has either been published or called to our attention. We are also including a summary of the technique employed by Lyssenko in his 'Jarovization' of corn. Demerec was kind enough to make the translation from the Russian.
The response of the maize geneticists to the two letters from this office asking for their cooperation in establishing a clearing house and central repository has been good. Either seed or the statement that certain stocks were available and would be sent later has been received from the following institutions: Wisconsin, Texas A. and M., Missouri, Carnegie Institution, U. S. Department of Agriculture, Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, California Institute of Technology, Minnesota, Ames, Bucknell and Cornell. A list of these stocks is included in this report.
