BGN  48:127 Export to PDF
Stock number: BGS 342
Locus name: Globosum-f
Locus symbol: glo-f

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

Globosum-e = glo-e (1).


Monofactorial recessive (1).
Located in chromosome 5HL (1).


The glo-f.305 plants were much shorter than the mother cultivar and produced small kernels that were short and round or globe-shaped. Seedlings had short first leaves and coleoptiles; glo-f.305 plants had a much shorter first leaf than glo-f.307 plants. Spikes were shorter than normal, but awn length was not reduced (2).
