production by Cg*-855621y
--Patrick S. Schnable
Plants carrying the dominant Cg*-855621y
mutation, which was isolated from rcy/Cy stocks, do not usually
produce tassels or anthers under summer conditions in Ames. This summer
for the first time we observed an anther on a plant grown in our Ames nursery.
No anthers were produced under winter greenhouse conditions in Koln, West
Germany. However, under winter conditions in Hawaii this mutant does sometimes
produce an occasional anther.
