Comment
A vernalization gene that affects flowering time in unvernalized plants but not in vernalized plants. Effect of Sh2 is weak in the presence of spring-type allele at the Sh locus. Model fitting of field data revealed a significant but small effect of Sh in spring-sown but not in autumn-sown plants (1).
