Introgressing White Mold Resistance from the Secondary Gene Pool of Common Bean Grant uri icon



  • 1) Develop five interspecific breeding lines derived from three Phaseolus species that breed pure for white mold resistance; 2) Compare the physiological resistance of the five interspecific breeding lines with known sources of white mold resistance; 3) Initiate white mold resistance screening of a new group of 482 interspecific breeding lines derived from crosses of pinto bean Othello and UI 320 with Phaseolus coccineus PI 433246 and PI 439534, respectively.
