Short Communications


The results of the hybrid and monosomic analyses of smoky ear coloration in the common wheat variety columbina are reported. The character has been found to be monogenic, and its gene has been located to chromosome 1DS. The smoky ear coloration is determined by an allele of gene Rg2 introgressed to wheat from Aegilops tauschii.
