Project Number: 6090-21000-054-01
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 the genetics and breeding for important biotic and abiotic traits in Feed the Future countries. Collaborative breeding will be initiated in important market classes for these selected traits.
