Plants with <coalesced stamens> were selected in S3 inbred generation of <winter rye> (Secale cereale L.) cv. Pancerne. After repeated self-pollinations of these plants a <homozgous line> was obtained. Plants with coalesced stamments in comparison to check plants are shorter, less tillering, have shorter stamens and staminal filaments, a smaller diameter of pollen sack, thinner walls of pollen sack and a smaller diameter of pollen vessels. On the cross-section of the stamen twelve pollen sacs are aranged in line or in the shape of triangle. It was found that the character of coalesced stamens is controlled by a single cs recessive gene.
