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)
Aims: The study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of pyramided genes in improving angular leaf spot (ALS) resistance in susceptible common bean cultivars. Study Design: The experiment was set in randomized block design with three replications. Place and Duration of Study: The experiment was conducted at International Centre for Tropical(More)
