Two new types of chlorophyll deficiencies,viz., xantha and patchy albinos, have been met with in sorghum. Both are lethal. Xantha seedlings are yellow in colour and are deficient in green chlorophyll pigment only. A gene designated y x is responsible for xantha seedlings. Y x results in the normal green seedlings. Patchy albinos differ from complete albinos in being greenish in colour with patches of albinotic areas. The gene responsible for the production of these patchy albinos has been designated al p . Al p results in normal green seedlings.
