GCP Product Catalogue

The Product Catalogue is an evolving  compilation of  a diverse array of  products derived from tangible outputs of projects supported in whole or in part by the CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme.  As projects mature, more products are added. Products are listed under the specific project crop or ‘Global’.   Under each crop, you will find diverse types of products, such as  germplasm, markers, genomics resources and informatics applications.  ‘Global’ includes products  applicable to several or all crops and generally includes informatics tools and learning materials. We consider all catalogued products as useful. However, our user base is highly varied and includes upstream as well as downstream plant scientists. Not all products will be of direct interest to breeders. Consequently, a BUL (Breeding Use Level) rating has been provided to indicate the direct usefulness of products to breeders:

Breeding Use Levels
BULDescription
1 Ready to use for breeding
 (I.e. predictive markers, germplasm of acceptable agronomic type containing a well-defined and characterized trait, and etc.).
2 Qualified use for breeding
 (i.e germplasm in which trait genetics have not been well defined or markers that may be informative but not necessarily predictive).
3 Indirectly useful for breeding
 (i.e. genomic resources from which downstream products for breeding are developed and many informatics applications).
4 Not developed for breeding, per se
 (i.e. miscellaneous information as socio-economic reports).

Product Number G4008.11
Product INTA Fuerte Sequía, a drought tolerant variety of common bean from Nicaragua
Crop/Area Beans
Type Germplasm
Description • Inta Fuerte Sequia is a small red seeded variety recommended for zones with limited water in Nicaragua. Good yields were indicated under seasonal rainfall levels of less than 200 mm. • INTA Fuerte Sequía was the first line bred for drought tolerance to be released for the lowland tropics. The grain is dark and similar to others currently under cultivation locally and regionally. The variety is moderately resistant to Bean Golden Yellow Mosaic Virus, Common Mosaic Virus, anthracnose, bacteriosis, and angular leaf spot. Physiological maturity is 65 days. Cooking quality is highly acceptable.
Current Use Cultivation by Nicaraguan farmers and breeding material for elite lines.
