Abstract

‘Sanilac’ has been a popular white dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in Ontario, Canada, as well as in Michigan, U.S.A. It is resistant to anthracnose incited by alpha, beta, and gamma races of Colletotrichum lindemuthianum (Sacc. & Magn.) Briosi & Cav. and race 1 of Bean Common Mosaic Virus (BCMV) (1). ‘Sanilac’, however, is susceptible to race 15 of BCMV (2) and to races delta and lambda of C. lindemuthianum (5, 6, 7), and it was included in a backcrossing project to incorporate additional resistance genes. The new breeding line, designated Sanilac BC6-Are has broader resistances than ‘Sanilac’. Since several recently developed cultivars outyield ‘Sanilac’, Sanilac BC6-Are is being released only as germplasm.
