V. REPORT OF THE MAIZE GENETICS COOPERATION STOCK CENTER

There were 141 seed requests received during 1981 and 1132 seed packets sent to fill the requests. Foreign requests amounted to 21% (29) of the total requests and 18% (212) of the total seed packets sent. Geneticists accounted for 52% of the seed requests received, physiologists 27%, plant breeders 14% and educational 7%.

Each year maize stocks are sent in by maize geneticists to become part of the collection. The following stocks have been received over the past several years and have either been placed on the stock list or will be increased and placed in the next few years.

The Advisory Committee for the Stock Center (D. Duvick, C. S. Levings, 0. E. Nelson) and E. H. Coe, USDA representative, met at Urbana in September 1981 to discuss and advise on the Stock Center. The general advice of the committee was that the chief function of the stock center should be the maintenance of maize genetic stocks and the promotion of cooperation between maize geneticists and also related disciplines. Additional functions of the stock center should be carried out as time and demand dictate. The Committee further suggested that the Director/Curator spend considerable time directing the functions of the stock center and conduct allied research activities as time and monies permit.

The following catalogue lists available stocks; translocations are listed in the 1981 News Letter. Requests for stocks and correspondence relative to the Stock Center should be addressed to:

R. J. Lambert
