A note on the inheritance of albinism in oil palm

Author(s): AHMAD KUSHAIRI Din*; RAO V+; RAJANAIDU, N*

Albino seedlings were observed among selfings of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) collected in Nigeria. Discrete phenotypic classes of pigmented plants and albinos conformed well with Mendelian ratios tested by Yate’s corrected Chi-square. Albinism in the oil palm was found to be controlled by a recessive gene.
