Four mutations for early heading, albina, short culm and sterility were obtained in the progenies of twelve rice plants regenerated from a single callus of a rice seed. Studies on the segregation rates of these mutations revealed that for each mutation a single recessive gene was likely to be involved and that there was no linkage among the genes. The segregation pattern also showed that these mutations were induced in the following sequence: early heading, albina, and short culm and sterility during the stage of callus growth until the beginning of the regeneration of the rice plants.
