Corn was more susceptible to systemic infection by barley stripe mosaic virus at 25.degree. C than at 35.degree. C, but 'Black Hulless' barley [Hordeum vulgare] was equally susceptible at both temperatures. Some corn lines were more susceptible to wheat streak mosaic virus at 35.degree. C than at 25.degree. C, but other lines were equally susceptible at those temperatures. Plants of corn stocks with a virus-induced mutation, aberrant ratio, were susceptible to infection by the inducing virus.
