The yellow dent Ohio 36 when pollinated with E. mexicana gave rise to an F3 plant without ears. Pollen from this plant, which had pigmented stem and leaf, was used to pollinate other plants in the same family and produced green hybrids with normal ears; 81 F2 plants from selfing one such hybrid comprised 60 normal individuals and 20 with pigment and no ears. This type is ascribed to the combination of two mutations, ba1 and a1, both in chromosome 3.
