Research Notes : United States : Inheritance of a miniature mutant in soybean
Is Version Of
Mutant T251 was found by Dr. R. L. Bernard at the University of Illinois in an F2 progeny from the cross 'Harosoy'5xT139. (Tl39 is a yellow mutant found in 'Illini' in 1936.) T251 is maintained in the Soybean Genetic Type Collection as the heterozygote T251H because of its low seed set. It is char-acterized by its short and slender stature.
