Location: Tropical Crops and Germplasm Research

Project Number: 6635-21000-054-02
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 01, 2013
End Date: Mar 31, 2014

Objective:
To complete common bean evaluation and improvement for Mozambique. Specifically shovelomics will be used to evaluate root traits in the ADP population to identify important genotypes and traits for breeding efforts.

Approach:
The ADP population will be planted in Sussundenga, Mozambique and evaluated for root traits at the flowering stage of development. Breeding will continue with lines selected with superior potential.
