The reactions of 18 cultivars and selections of barley, Hordeum vulgare L., to inoculations with three cultures of the loose smut fungus, Ustilago nuda (Jens.) Rostr., were determined. The following conclusions were derived by analyzing the reactions of cultivars Jet (Ci 967) and Milton (Ci 4966) and derivatives from them to inoculations with cultures 244 of race 2, 49-70 of race 2, and 10 of race 1. Jet was shown to have two genes, Un3 and Un6, and Milton, one gene, Un8. Derivatives from Jet with only gene Un6 were distinguished from those with genes Un3 and Un6. Five host selections known to have a gene or genes at the same locus as Jet were shown to have gene Un6 or a similar gene at that locus.
