1. Methods for recognising S allele homozygotes in inbred families from parents heterozygous for alleles which may have four possible dominance relations are discussed.
2. Examples are given of the recognition in inbred families of homozygotes for two S alleles present in the parents when one allele is dominant in both pollen and style, when one allele is dominant in the pollen only, when one allele is dominant in the style only, and finally when both alleles are active in both pollen and style.
3. Self-compatible plants in the inbred offspring of self-incompatible plants may be either homozygous for a self-fertility allele in the S series or for a recessive allele independent of the S allele series. Female sterility may also be due to genes linked with the S alleles or independent of them.
4. Pseudo-compatibility occurred in many families, but it was possible to ignore it in the analysis of the pollination results for the recognition of S allele homozygotes.
