D10 (D*-2428) on chromosome 2L
A dominant EMS-induced dwarf mutant was located to chromosome 2L using
the wx-marked reciprocal translocation method. This small, erect-leaf
dwarf has leaves of proportionally normal width, slender stalk, and shortened
internodes. It is not andromonoecious, with a small ear, and just a fair
tassel that sheds good pollen. Tillers with a tassel seed expression are
often present. The data showing linkage with wx T2-9d are presented
below. Tests of several other chromosomes were negative.

Les20 (Les*-2457) on chromosome 1L
A dominant EMS-induced small chlorotic spot lesion mutant was tested
for location to chromosome with the full set of wx-marked translocations.
Linkage data with wx T1-9c and wx T1-9(4995) indicate location on the proximal
one-third of 1L. Tests of several other chromosomes were negative.

Wi4 (Wi*-2445) on chromosome 5
A dominant EMS-induced chronically wilted mutant was shown, as indicated
by the following data, to be linked with wx T5-9c. Other chromosome tests
