Project Number: 6635-21000-054-01
Start Date: Jun 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2014
A panel of diverse common bean germplasm specific to the Andean lineage will be developed. The panel will serve as a tool for studying important biotic and abiotic traits in Feed the Future (FTF) countries (Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda), while not excluding others (Angola). Characterization of specific traits of importance in FTF countries will be carried out on the ADP population as well as on bi-parental populations.
