In homozygous parent plants, similar genes of a Mendelian pair are present, which is the case for dwarf pea plants that contain only the genes for dwarfness
The best 26 selections (dwarf, panicle exertion, complete seed set, early to medium maturity, and stiff stalk) were grown in a winter nursery in Puerto Vallarta and evaluated for seed set, dwarfness
, panicle size, and earliness.
The characteristics of dwarfness
seemed to have disappeared.
homozygous--the plant has similar genes of a Mendelian pair present, such as the dwarf pea plants that contain only the genes for dwarfness
In the spring of 1995, nine plants exhibiting dwarfness
and a darker green color were selected from 500 space plants and allowed to produce seed at Overton, TX.
A similarly rapid spread was observed for wheat varieties incorporating dwarfness
