Condensed plant type (ct) observed in crosses involving NY544 (Tracy and Everett MNL 54:57) has been identified as reduced (rd). NY544 is derived from the inbred CrS4HLA developed by the Crookham Company. No allelism tests have been done, however, Dr. Steve Marshall, Director of Research at Crookhams, has confirmed that rd was incorporated into this material.
