    • Abstract


      1. Yellow seedling, a lethal gene in Asiatic cotton, is a simple Mendelian recessive to normal. It has been discovered three times in three unrelated varieties.

      2. Yellow seedling and anthocyanin pigmentation are linked. The cross-over value is about 9 %.

      3. Yellow seedling is inherited independently of curly leaf and corolla colour.
