Abstract:

Here we report the usefulness of a new method for evaluation of a core set of common bean genotypes in terms of a new index based on a combination of stress susceptibility index, the stress tolerance index, the mean production index, the geometric mean production index, and the tolerance index, which have been previously used either in isolation or together for understanding water stress adaptation. The method is based on a scoring scale, offers simple and easy visualization and identification of resilient, productive and/or contrasting genotypes based on grain yield. This new selection method could help breeders and researchers by defining clear and strong criteria to identify genotypes with high resilience and high productivity and provide a clear visualization of contrasts in terms of grain yield production under stress. The approach is highly useful in initial evaluation of large germplasm sets for identification of resilient and productive genotypes.
