The efficiency of recurrent selection was assessed in obtaining common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L) plant lines resistant to the phytopathogenic fungi Phaeoisariopsis griseola. The base bean population was obtained from the partial diallel between seven lines with carioca-type grains and 10 sources of resistance to P. griseola. The plants most resistant to(More)
Three dry bean harvests are possible in some regions of Brazil that differ significantly in temperature, rainfall and day length conditions. Thus in breeding programs, generation advance using the bulk method can be carried out in these three periods. It is questionable whether under conditions such as these the action of natural selection would contribute(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the genetic progress after four cycles of recurrent selection in common bean. The base segregating population was obtained from 10 parents, and derived the S0:1 and S0:2 families that were evaluated. The S0:3 families with higher grain yield and grain color, like the standard carioca were selected, and were(More)
Common bean populations from crosses between lines of different races are thought to be more promising for selection of high yield potential than those from intra-racial crosses. Three distinct diallel crosses were made to test this hypothesis and to determine the possibility of substituting diallel crosses for multivariate techniques that estimate genetic(More)
Earliest possible prediction of seed-yield potential of autogamous crop populations increases breeding program efficiency by saving time and resources. Alternatives for obtaining seed-yield predictions were compared by evaluating four common-bean populations in F1 and F2 generations together with the parents. Mean components (m + a’ and d) and variances(More)
This study aimed compare segregating populations of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) derived from intra and inter-gene pool crosses of elite lines by estimates of some genetic and phenotypic parameters. Four elite lines highly adapted to Brazilian conditions were used (ESAL 686 and BRS Radiante: Andean gene pool; BRSMG Majestoso and BRS Valente:(More)
