Even if lines known to maintain [A.sub.1] cytoplasmic male sterility ([B.sub.1]-lines) were to be used as pollinators in the mixture, stray pollen from shattercane or neighboring sorghum fields with the capacity to restore fertility to [A.sub.1] cytoplasmic male steriles could be expected to pollinate some of the transgenic sorghum females and introduce male fertile transgenic plants into the population of volunteer escaped plants.

The low levels of seed set on selfed [A.sub.3] [F.sub.2] individuals (0.04%) as compared with [A.sub.1] [F.sub.2] individuals (74%) is a clear indication of greatly reduced levels of viable pollen production from volunteer progeny of seed that escapes harvest in the cropping year.
