Genetic control and estimation of genetic parameters for seed-coat darkening of carioca beans

F. C. Silva, Melo, P. G. S., Pereira, H. S., and Melo, L. C., Genetic control and estimation of genetic parameters for seed-coat darkening of carioca beans, vol. 13, pp. 6486-6496, 2014.

The maintenance of the light color of the grains of carioca beans is a requirement for the development of new cultivars of common beans because it enables the storage of grains for long periods so that they may be traded at a proper opportunity. Crosses of cultivar BRSMG Madrepérola, which presents slow grain darkening, were made to 10 elite lines presenting normal darkening to obtain information about the genetic control of the trait and estimates of phenotypic and genotypic parameters.
