Comment
References to additional studies are given in (1026).
Winter cultivars carry recessive alleles at all five Vrn loci. Differences among winter wheats with respect to vernalization requirements seem to be due to multiple recessive alleles (830). Two genes may determine differences between winter wheats requiring 20 days and 60-65 days of vernalization (316).
