Technical Abstract: In hexaploid oat (Avena sativa L., 2n = 6x = 42) both haploid oat plants and plants with one or more maize (Zea mays L., 2n = 2x = 20) chromosomes added to an oat genome have been recovered from oat x maize crosses. This report describes the production and characterization of these materials including the generation of a complete set of individual maize chromosome addition oat plants for each of the ten maize chromosomes, the recovery of chromosome-segment additions following gamma radiation treatments, and illustrations of how these materials can serve as valuable oat and maize genetic tools and germplasm sources.
