Phenotypic evaluation of the effect of high temperatures (2°C and 4°C above ambient temperature) on elite common bean lines
A heat tolerant trial of Andean beans was planted in Alvarado (Tolima) (July to November 2016). A total of 157 individual selections were planted. A total of 8 F1.3 and 31 F1.4 were selected under conditions of heat stress. The RIL population IJR x AFR 298 was tested in the same environment in Alvarado. In this population we evaluated 17 traits related to high temperature stress.
