Abstract

The cultivation of that legume is widespread throughout the country presenting high expression in the social and economic issues. The aim of this work was to evaluate the agronomic characteristics and disease incidence in ten common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cultivars grown in Cerrado soils. The research was developed under field conditions during two cropping years. The studied cultivars were: IAC - Galante, IAC - Centauro, IAC -Una, IPR- Tiziu, IAC - Carioca Eté, IPR - Juriti, IPR - Colibri, IPR - Eldorado, IPR - Siriri and IPR- Corujinha. Grain yield of cultivars IPR- Juriti (Carioca) and IPR - Colibri (Carioca) remained stable during the two cultivation years; the IAC -Una and IPR - Siriri cultivars were the most productive in 2010. In the offseason of 2012 the cultivar IPR - Eldorado distinguished among others; for most cultivars symptoms of anthracnose and common bacterial blight were detected however with a low disease incidence. The cultivars were not infected with rust.
