INTRODUCTION

In recent years, Brazil has been ranked first in the production and consumption of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) (FAO, 2015). Black beans are the second most consumed type of bean in Brazil, representing 17% of the consumer market and corresponding to approximately 490,000 tons/year (Del Peloso and Melo, 2005). Together, the Central and Center-South regions of Brazil are responsible for 84% of Brazil’s bean production (Pontes Junior et al., 2014).
