S., and Cruz, C. D., Diallel analysis to choose parents for black bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) breeding, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

In this study, conducted in two different seasons, we aimed to choose parents to obtain promising segregating populations for the extraction of black bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) lines that are superior in terms of disease resistance, plant architecture, and grain yield. Twelve parents were arranged in two groups to compose a partial diallel in a 5 x 7 scheme.

Potential of hypocotyl diameter in family selection aiming at plant architecture improvement of common bean

A. M. C. Oliveira, Batista, R. O., Carneiro, P. C. S., Carneiro, J. E. S., and Cruz, C. D., Potential of hypocotyl diameter in family selection aiming at plant architecture improvement of common bean, vol. 14, pp. 11515-11523, 2015.

Cultivars of common bean with more erect plant architecture and greater tolerance to degree of lodging are required by producers. Thus, to evaluate the potential of hypocotyl diameter (HD) in family selection for plant architecture improvement of common bean, the HDs of 32 F2 plants were measured in 3 distinct populations, and the characteristics related to plant architecture were analyzed in their progenies.
