Anther 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.
