Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is an important export crop in Kyrgyzstan. Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) is a seed-born disease that affects this crop and reduces its yield significantly in the country. The aim of this study was to identify virus strain(s) occurring in Kyrgyzstan and breed host plant resistance to BCMV using DNA markers. Susceptible… CONTINUE READING
