Rationale for Breeding Canning Beans Adapted to Biotic and Abiotic stressesProcess Current variety (Mex 142) more than 50 years old, susceptible to biotic and abiotic stresses445 lines Many farmers stopped growing the varietyAgronomic Processing industry not able to meet demandpotential- yield, e.g. 300 t /year for Trufoodsdiseases, vigour Erratic supply and poor quality raw materialsgrowth habit Industry demanded better varieties Demand for fast cooking or pre-cooked products high energy costs150 lines Changing eating habits -wider range ofDrought preferences with urbanizationtolerance & farmer Focus on 7 market classes for canning industry preferences Fast cooking- for direct consumptionCanning Pre-cooked productsand Canned products20-25 lines Nutritionalquality 3 4.

Structure of Breeding ProgramThree parallel Breeding Streams:Stream 1: Advanced lines of a genetically diverse lines Objective: drought tolerance, yield potential andcanning quality 447 Mesoamerican and Andean linesStream 2: Biofortified varieties combining high iron(>90 ppm) and zinc (>35 ppm) multiple stress to biotic and biotic stresses Based on 47 new populations segregating for multiple traitsStream 3: Marker assisted gamete selection for simultaneous selection for resistance to biotic and abiotic stress factors, marketable grain types Focus markers and diseases: anthracnose, angular leaf spot, root rots, common bacterial blight, bean common mosaic virus5 6.
