Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), which is an important food crop in the Americas, Africa and Asia, usually is thought to fix only small amounts of atmospheric nitrogen. However, field data indicate considerable genetic variability for total N2 fixation and traits associated with fixation. Studies have shown that selection to increase N2 fixation will be successful if: (1) discriminating traits (selection criteria) are measured precisely, (2) variability in germplasm is heritable, (3… CONTINUE READING
