Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is widely grown and consumed in Zambia but its production is limited by drought and high temperature stresses.
In the country there is limited information on farmers’ preferences and the genetics of drought and heat tolerance of common bean for breeding to enhance its production.
Therefore, the objectives of this study were to: 1) determine farmers’ selection criteria and preferences for common bean varieties, 2) evaluate the Zambian bean germplasm for drought and heat tolerance, and 3) determine the genetic effects and inheritance of drought and heat stress tolerance in Zambian common bean germplasm.
Nathan Phiri received his Ph.D.
in Plant Breeding from the University of Kwazullu Natal in 2016.
He is currently the Chief Seeds Officer at Seed Control and Certification Institute in Zambia.
His current research interests include seed systems research, breeding for abiotic stresses and working with underutilized crop species.
