Morris, Rosalind and Frolik, E.F. (1961) The effects of irradiating dormant maize seeds with Xrays and thermal neutrons (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 202)
In 1951 a research program was started at the University of Nebraska to compare the developmental effects of thermal neutrons and X rays on different crop seeds. Three crops, barley, tomato and maize, were chosen for additional information involving induced chromosomal aberrations and seedling mutations. The maize investigations are presented in this bulletin, along with a comparison among the three crops with respect to irradiation effects.
