Fusarium root rot (FRR) is a major disease of common bean worldwide. Knowledge of the inheritance of resistance to FRR would be important in devising strategies to breed resistant varieties. Therefore, a 12 × 12 full diallel mating scheme with reciprocal crosses was performed to generate 132 F1 progenies, which were then advanced to the F3. The progenies(More)
Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) associated with physiological resistance to Fusarium Root Rot (FRR) and root architecture traits were mapped in a black bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) recombinant inbred line (RIL) population. The parents of this population were the landrace Puebla 152 and the cultivar Zorro that differed in root architecture traits. The(More)
Rust caused by Uromyces appendiculatus (Pers., Pers.) Unger is one of the major foliar diseases of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) in Uganda. The use of host resistance remains the best option in managing this disease. The objective of this study was to identify sources of broad-spectrum rust resistance in common bean germplasm including landraces,(More)
Research Application Summary Angular leaf spot (ALS) is an important disease of common bean in Uganda. The presence of resistance sources with narrow adaptability coupled with pathogen's variability have greatly undermined previous breeding efforts leading to severe yield losses. This study seeks to identify new adapted resistance sources within the local(More)
