The varieties Beagle, Coorong, TL419 and Welsh were exposed to gamma rays and ethyl methanesulfonate. All 4 varieties gave 3 plant height mutants: semidwarf (20-25 cm shorter than the shortest control plant), dwarf (height up to 40-60 cm) and stunted (height up to 10-20 cm). M3, M4 and M5 segregation patterns indicated that semidwarf stature is quantitatively inherited whereas dwarf and stunted are monogenic recessive.
