The food, agricultural and ecological values of leguminous crops are tremendous, and common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) has a major role in all these. The amount of diversity of a crop species at farmers’ level is usually measured by the number of distinct landraces or farmers’ varieties. These landraces are the results of millennia of natural and artificial selection by farmers for better adaptation to local growing conditions.1 A land race is a dynamic population of a cultivated plant… 

Evaluation of Proximate, Mineral and Anti- nutritional composition of improved and released Common bean varieties in Ethiopia

Common bean is the most important major food legume which is used either as a source of protein for local consumption or as an export crop for income generating in Ethiopia. The purpose of the

Protein and DNA Polymorphisms among Three Colored Seeds of Phaseolus vulgaris L. Cultivars during Seven Subsequent Stages of their Development

It is better to be combined for reliable estimates of genetic variations among the three studied cultivars during their development to earn valuable genetic resources exploited for breeding new cultivars.



Diversity of Common Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) Landraces and the Nutritional Value of their Grains

There are significant differences in the morphological and physiological traits of the plant, pod and grain among groups of common bean landraces of different geographic origins that can enable a participatory breeding initiative guided by regional objectives.

In Situ Conservation of Landraces in Centers of Crop Diversity

Three cases of on-going maintenance of landraces by farmers who have also adopted high-input technology, including high yielding crop cultivars are presented, suggesting that on-farm conservation of landRaces can be decoupled from traditional farming practices.

Genetic Diversity of Croatian Common Bean Landraces

In Croatia, the majority of the common bean production is based on local landraces, grown by small-scale farmers in low input production systems, which are in danger of genetic erosion caused by complex socio-economic changes in rural communities.

In Situ conservation of maize in Mexico: Genetic diversity and Maize seed management in a traditional community

Results from a study of maize varieties and seed sources in a traditional community in Jalisco, Mexico, raise questions about the relationship between genetic erosion and the introduction of

Landraces of Phaseolus vulgaris (Fabaceae) in Northern Malawi. II. Generation and maintenance of variability

Experiments determined that outcrossing does occur at a low level among beans in Malawi and can result in the generation of many new seed phenotypes, a foundation for understanding the generation and maintenance of variability in these bean landraces.

Phenotyping common beans for adaptation to drought

Efforts to improve common bean for drought tolerance are reviewed, referring to genetic diversity for drought response, the physiology of drought tolerance mechanisms, and breeding strategies.

Cereal landraces for sustainable agriculture. A review

This review of the current status and prospects for landraces of cereals in the context of sustainable agriculture considers their potential as sources of novel disease and abiotic stress resistance genes or combination of genes if deployed appropriately, of phytonutrients accompanied with optimal micronutrient concentrations which can help alleviate aging-related and chronic diseases, and of nutrient use efficiency traits.

A Dynamic Sorghum (Sorghum Bicolor (L.) Moench) diversity Management in Situ and Livelihood Resilience in South and Central Tigray Region, Ethiopia

Sorghum is an important crop for the south and central parts of Tigray Region of Ethiopia. To assess the level of sorghum diversity, two zones, namely South and Central Tigray were selected and

Toward an Evolved Concept of Landrace

A more inclusive definition of landraces is proposed, namely that they consist of cultivated varieties that have evolved and may continue evolving, using conventional or modern breeding techniques, in traditional or new agricultural environments within a defined ecogeographical area and under the influence of the local human culture.

Origin of the common bean,Phaseolus vulgaris

Evidence from comparative morphology, geographic distribution, ecology, genetic relationship, and archeologic history all indicate the wild vines are progenitors of the common American bean.
