One of the Hooker-Russell lines (PI16164375 x B1416 x A63214), as mentioned in last year's newsletter, has only male sterile plants. This is another source of cytoplasmic male sterility. Crosses of male sterile plants with a line that restores fertility to the Texas cytoplasmic male sterile produce completely fertile plants.
