Breeders normally select simultaneously for several traits in various environments. We investigated the effects of the progeny x environment interaction on success in selection for several traits. The population used was obtained from a cross between the CVIII-85-11 line, which has a semi-erect to prostrate plant architecture and a cream with brown streaks bean type, and the BRS-Supremo cultivar, which has an erect plant architecture and black grains.
