Nibbles: Bean atlas, Community seedbanks double, Canadian stamps

  1. New edition of the Atlas of Common Bean Production in Africa still doesn’t have localities of genebank accessions.
  2. Community seed banks have genebank accessions in Kenya and India.
  3. Canadian stamps have crabapple varieties that are probably genebank accessions somewhere.

  1. Hello Luigi
    Re. the lack of localities of genebank accessions in the new edition of the Atlas of Common Bean Production in Africa

    Yes, a good point. It’s because we concentrated on the production issues. This 2nd version *does* include varieties and seed systems (which weren’t there in the first version).

    We addressed other gaps that were identified by a survey of PABRA researchers, but the breeders didn’t mention accession localities.
    Perhaps in the next version :)
