White stripes on some of the seedling leaves.
Penetrance fair, but most if not all plants homozygous for the recessive can be determined. The stripe is most easily visible under cool growing conditions in the field on spaced plants at about the 6 tiller stage. The stripes cannot be seen in later stages of the plant's life cycle, when the leaves have lost their green color.
