Colchicine treatment of seedlings of sorghum line, Experimental 3, has resulted in the production of true-breeding mutant lines which fall into specific types. Nine classes (two with subclasses based on variation in a single character) have been set up. Non-recurrent mutant lines (some resembling certain classes to a degree and others distinctly different) have also been obtained. Further work would be expected to produce both additional lines and additional classes. The composite nature of the… CONTINUE READING
