    Programs and Projects such as the Program for Agricultural Seed Systems(PASS) and the Agricultural Revolution for Africa (AGRA) To maximize profitability and services of seed enterprises to farmers and seed users, some of the enterprises have now expanded their product lines to include other crops such as maize, cassava, beans and sweet Size: KB.   The CIAT bean program web page shows that yields of their improved varieties in commercial plantings in Mexico and Central America range from to 1, kg per ha, with low to moderate levels of pesticide inputs. Project Methods OBJECTIVE 1: SNPs will be developed for each common bean race and used to characterize a large set of common and breeding-program specific unique genotypes using the Illumina Golden Gate assay system. The sequence data will be developed from massively parallel sequencing of several genotypes within the Durango, Mesoamerican, and Nuevo Granada genotypes.   Nebraska dry bean production is located in the western part of the state scattered across 26 counties, with 11 counties in the North Platte River Valley of the Panhandle accounting for the largest share of the crop. The development of improved varieties and germplasm with high yield potential, disease resistance, efficiency under low soil-water conditions, and good seed quality has to be.

CIAT safeguards the world’s largest and most diverse collection of bean germplasm. The collection consists of aro samples of cultivated materials mostly from the crop’s Mesoamerican and Andean centers of origin together with wild species related to these materials.

Using germplasm in CIAT’s genebank, bean breeders have developed varieties with 60% more iron, an essential nutrient particularly for pregnant varieties – referred to as BIO and BIO – also contain 50% more zinc – a micronutrient vital for a strong immune system.

They are not only more nutritious, they also produce good yields and are of The CIAT bean program book shape, size and color. Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical.

Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is a staple food in Latin America and is frequently grown by small farmers on acid infertile e yields are very low (± kg ha-1) when compared to those in temperate zones ( kg ha-1).On acid, infertile soils, the main limiting factor for bean production is low available by: Five bean varieties rich in iron and zinc were recently released for the first time in Uganda.

These varieties included three bush and two climber growth types. Prior to the release, 16 different bean varieties were evaluated for their yield potential, ability to accumulate micronutrients such as iron and zinc and farmer’s preferences.
