The collection of autotetraploid barley stocks has been maintained as
reported in previous years (see BGN 1, 1971; BGN 4, 1974; BGN 6, 1976;
BGN 7, 1977; BGN 8, 1978; BGN 9, 1979).
In 1979, three new autotetraploid stocks have been added to the collection:
(1) KARRI 4x + 2x (V) Spring barley (2-rowed)
(2) HA 2-1 4x (v)
provided by H. Ahokas,
(3) PGR-8480 4x Winter barley (6-rowed) provided by G. Fedak
The whole collection is going to be grown again in the nursery at Grünbach
in 1980. After multiplication, seed samples of all stocks will be transferred
to the "German Genebank":
