In jute (Corchorus capsularis), leafy stipule was linked to cordate leaf (p'" ,~.2), persistent
petiole (p=43.3), green testa colour (p=33.6); and cordate leaf was linked with dwarf stem
(p=26.9). Independent segregation was noted between narrow leaf, yellow leaf and cordate
leaf and between leafy stipule and dwarf stem. New gene symbols for dwarf stem (Dw-dw),
persistent petiole (Ppt-ppt), cordate leaf (Cd-cd), yellow leaf (Yl-yn and green testa (Gr-gr)
are proposed. Gene symbols for narrow leaf (Sr-sr) and leafy stipule (Sfl-sfl) proposed by
earlier workers have been retained.
Keywords: Jute, Corchorus capsuJaris, joint segregation, linkage, gene symbol.
