Sex In Corn, Said
Columbus, Ohio.—Study of sex In
Indian com. with human applica
tion as Its ultimate objective, has
revealed that long daylight horns
produce the male gender.
“The practical objective of tl\esa
experiments.” nays John H. Sehaff
ner, research professor of botany
of Ohio State university, "is not to
discover something of Immediate
commercial value, but to develop a
basis of scientific facts which will
lead to a proper understanding of
the nature of sexuality, and to de
velop a proper theory of the
science and philosophy of the sub
"This. if attained, will be of
great importance to the whole
realm of biology, Including human
medicine and human behavior In
so far as our behavior 13 lnlluenc
ed by normal or abnormal sexual
states. The present genetic theories
of sexuality are fundamentally
false, and It was to develop a true
comprehension that I have been
carrying on experiments along
these lines for the past 10 years ”
In normal Indian corn, says
Professor Scaffncr, the ear at the
side Is female and the tassel at the
top is male when the com Is grown
during the long daylight period of
late spring and summer.
Greenhouse corn pianieo any
time between October 15 and De
cember 15 shows 50 to 100 per cent
sex reversal to the female in the
tassel, the 100 per cent reversal be
ing brought about by the shortest
dally Illumination of winter. In
this change, he says, the tissues
necessarily pass through a neuter
se* state. If planting is timed so
that the neuter sex stage is reach
ing about the time of flower devel
opment, many tassels will be mere
vestiges instead of the two feet or
more of normal tassels.
When the com reaches the neu
ter point about the time of flower
ing. it cannot produce any further
vegetation, unless rejuvenation Is
“The experiments show," says
Professor Schaffner, “that we are
now on the way of controlling sex
determination, not only in such a
way as to produce males and fe
males at will or cause the sex to be
reversed in mature individuals, but
with proper conditions, we can
produce completely neutral struc
tures. The change from male to
female and from female to male
also has been produced in a con
siderable number of other plants in
which the entire individual is nor
mally of but one sex.“
