Interpretive Summary: Bean common mosaic virus and bean common mosaic necrosis virus are important seed-borne diseases of dry bean in the Americas and Africa. The bean weevil (Acanthoscelides obtectus Say) is an aggressive post-harvest pest of the common bean. The development of bean lines that combine resistance to both viruses and to bean weevils can help to reduce yield loss during the growing season and avoid seed damage during storage. AO-1012-29-3-3A is a multiple virus and bean weevil resistant bean germplasm line adapted to the humid tropics that was developed and released cooperatively in 2015 by Sokoine University of Agriculture, Oregon State University, the USDA-ARS and the University of Puerto Rico. AO-1012-29-3-3A has a determinate growth habit and a dark red kidney seed type similar to the cultivar ‘Rojo’ that is commercially acceptable in Tanzania. AO-1012-29-3-3A possesses the I and bc-12 genes that confer resistance to BCMV and BCMNV. AO-1012-29-3-3A produced a mean seed yield similar to the checks USLK-1 and ‘Badillo’ in three trials planted in Puerto Rico. AO-1012-29-3-3A should serve as a useful source of resistance to the bean weevil, BCMV and some pathogroups of BCMNV.

Technical Abstract: Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) and bean common mosaic necrosis virus (BCMNV) are important seed-borne diseases of dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in the Americas and Africa. The bean weevil (Acanthoscelides obtectus Say) is an aggressive post-harvest pest of the common bean. The development of bean lines that combine resistance to BCMV, BCMNV and bean weevils can help to reduce yield loss during the growing season and avoid seed damage during storage. AO-1012-29-3-3A, (Reg. No. GP-____, PI____) is a multiple virus and bean weevil resistant bean germplasm line adapted to the humid tropics that was developed and released cooperatively in 2015 by Sokoine University of Agriculture, Oregon State University, the USDA-ARS and the University of Puerto Rico. AO-1012-29-3-3A has a determinate growth habit and a dark red kidney seed type similar to the cultivar ‘Rojo’ that is commercially acceptable in Tanzania. AO-1012-29-3-3A possesses the I and bc-12 genes that confer resistance to BCMV and BCMNV.
