Abstract
Twenty Phaseolus bean lines were screened for resistance to anthracnose by artificially inoculating them with different isolates of Colletotrichum lindemuthianum in the field and in the green house. One line, P-260, was immune to anthracnose and five lines, UAC 57, UAC 79, P-304, P-618 and P-774 were highly resistant. Lines UAC 41, EAI 2889, EAI 4110, P-2, P-360 and P-504 were moderately resistant. The remaining lines were susceptible. The immune and resistant lines have some undesirable consumer characteristics and they can therefore be used as sources of resistant genes ill breeding programmes. Alternatively, they can be -improved to -eliminate the undesirable characteristics since some of them are also high -yielding.
