Ears supposed to be 3-point backcrosses segregated only for su and la (see 1984 Maize News Letter). The su la plant used for the backcrosses was neither gl nor heterozygous gl. From the increases obtained in 1984, I can now furnish seed that should provide su gl4 la plants. My face will be red if it does not.
