It has been reported that RAPD and ISSR markers are frequently used to determine the genetic diversity in common bean
as well as other crops (Tiwari et al.
In all three experiments there was a significant effect of the different types of biochar on the growth and development of common bean
We have three hypotheses: 1--The super early cycle common bean
genotypes are a viable alternative for farmers with grain yield similar to that of traditionally grown crops; 2--The application of all N at sowing of the crop provides higher grain yield than the split application of N; and 3--The application of the total N at sowing provides significant changes in soil mineral N availability which affects the development of common bean
Figure 1 shows the zoning maps of the common bean
based on the WRSI for the sowing periods 08 to 12 (March 20 to April 10).
In Kenya, common bean
is the most important food legume and second to maize (Zea mays L.
Inheritance of seed iron and zinc concentration in common bean
(Phaseolus vulgaris L.
Microsatellite diversity and genetic structure among common bean
(Phaseolus vulgaris L.
tabaci biotype B is concerning to virus transmission, such as the golden bean mosaic virus (GBMV), one of the major problems for common bean
crop in Latin America.
Integration of common bean
into existing cropping systems has the potential to mitigate food insecurity in Kenya if challenges associated with its production are addressed.
Our goal was to determine some germination parameters of the response to temperature and water potential of four common bean
(Phaseolus vulgaris) lines based on thermal-time and hydrotime concepts (FINCH-SAVAGE, 2004), and assess to what extent they can be used to predict germination under different thermal and water conditions, thus serving as potential screening tool for beans genotypes showing improved germination under a wide range of sowing conditions.
As a coagulants alum (KAl(SO4)2 * 12 H2O) and natural coagulant from common bean
seeds were considered.
Phaseolin protein variability in wild forms and landraces of the common bean
Among the topics are the molecular evolution and breeding consequences of self-compatibility and its absence in Prunus fruit trees, marker-assisted breeding for resistance to common bacterial blight in common bean
, joint regression analysis and completed joint regression analysis, breeding for reaction, genotype-by-environment interaction and selection of high yielding stable cultivars, and morphological differentiation of sepal and petal in Habenaria radiata (Orchidceae).
The effect of white common bean
addition on certain nutritional, physicochemical and textural properties of tortillas was determined.
We analyzed antioxidant activity of 29 common bean
genotypes that consist of US grown and CIAT (International Center for Tropical Agriculture) developed genotypes.
