Evaluation of yellow common bean (Phaseolus vulgsaris L.) genotypes for resistance to anthracnose

Anthracnose, caused by the fungus Colletotrichum lindemuthianum, is a significant disease affecting common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). The identification of sources of anthracnose resistance within the yellow market class is crucial for developing yellow bean varieties resistant to anthracnose. The objective of this study was to assess a set of yellow common bean genotypes for resistance to eight races of C....

Genotype and genotype x environment interaction effects on the rice grain yield performance in different agro-ecologies in Tanzania

This study aimed to assess the potential of elite rice lines to perform consistently and provide a high yield in several testing environments in Tanzania. A total of eleven rice genotypes were assessed for their yield performance and stability during two consecutive cropping seasons at three different environments. The assessment of grain yield stability was conducted using the Additive Main effect and Multiplicative...
