INTRODUCTION

Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean, dry edible bean, field bean), hereinafter bean, is a legume that is prominent in the diet on several continents and is an important source of protein, phosphorus, iron, vitamin B1, and fiber. It is of great socioeconomic importance and its cultivation generates jobs and income throughout the year. In the state of São Paulo, Brazil, growing and harvest of bean are concentrated in three crop seasons: the wet, dry, and winter season. According to the crop surveys, production in the state of São Paulo was estimated at 265.8 thousand metric tons in an area of 107.6 thousand hectares, with average yield of 2,470 kg ha-1. Brazilian production as a whole is estimated at 3,285.6 thousand metric tons in an area of 3,078 thousand hectares, with average yield of 1,067 kg ha-1 (CONAB 2017CONAB - Companhia Nacional de Abastecimento (2017) Available at: <Available at: http://www.conab.gov.br/OlalaCMS/uploads/arquivos/17_04_17_17_20_55_boletim_graos_abr_2017.pdf >.

).

There was an increase in average grain yield compared to the previous harvest, and this may be attributed to some crop management factors. However, plant breeding with the insertion of genetic resistance to diseases (Carbonell et al. 2010Carbonell SAM, Chiorato AF, Carvalho CRL, Ramos Junior EU, Ito MK, Borges WLB, Ticelli M, Santos NCB and Gallo PB (2010) IAC Formoso: new carioca common bean cultivar. Crop Breeding and Applied Biotechnology 10: 374-376., Henrique et al. 2015Henrique FH, Carbonell SAM, ITO MF, Gonçalves JGR, Sasseron GR and Chiorato AF (2015) Classification of physiological races of Fusariumoxysporum f. sp. phaseoli in common bean.

Crop Breeding and Applied Biotechnology 17: 67-71.) and an increase in the yield capacity of cultivars through various selection cycles have contributed to increase production potential, together with high quality of the grains.

Barili et al. (2015Barili LD, Vale NM, Prado AL, Carneiro JES, Silva FF and Nascimento M (2015) Genotype-environment interaction in common bean cultivars with carioca grain cultivated in Brazil in the last 40 years. Crop Breeding and Applied Biotechnology 15: 244-250.), reinforcing the importance of developing new cultivars, investigated the relationship between an increase in grain yield and the adaptability and phenotypic stability parameters in carioca (beige with brown stripe seed coat) bean cultivars recommended by several Brazilian institutions in the last 40 years, thus confirming that the effective increase in grain yield is the result of recommendation of new cultivars over the decades and that the cultivars recently recommended combine high yields, wide adaptability, and high predictability.

In this respect, studies in bean breeding of the Instituto Agronômico de Campinas, Brazil, at the Centro de Pesquisa Tecnológica dos Agronegócios dos Grãos e Fibras, emphasize not only high yield, adaptability, and production stability, but also the need to obtain plants with resistance to the main bean diseases, such as anthracnose and Fusarium wilt. In relation to Fusarium wilt, lack of chemical control makes the insertion of genetic resistance an important strategy for growing bean in infected areas because this disease attacks the root system, leading to necrosis of the xylem and risk of total crop loss.

The aim of the present study was to present data on the bean inbred line FAP-F3RC2-2 in the Valor de Cultivo e Uso -VCU (Value for Cultivation and Use) trials in the state of São Paulo in the three growing seasons, resulting in registration of the bean cultivar IAC Sintonia.

GENETIC ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT

The cultivar IAC Sintonia, inbred line FAP-F3RC2-2, was developed by the bean breeding program of IAC to incorporate moderate resistance to the pathogen Fusarium oxysporum in the IAC Alvorada cultivar. Thus, in 2009 a single cross was made between cultivars with the carioca seed coat, IAC Alvorada x Pérola, which generated 157 F1 seeds. From these F1 seeds, backcrosses were made using the IAC Alvorada cultivar as a recurrent parent because of its excellent grain quality. From the first backcross (F1RC1), 31 seeds were obtained. In 2010, these 31 F1RC1 seeds were sown to carry out a new backcross with the IAC Alvorada cultivar, and 135 seeds of the F1RC2 generation were obtained. As of this generation, inoculation with the pathogen Fusarium oxysporum began for the purpose of selecting only resistant seedlings for advancing generations.

With the inoculations made, 126 seedlings were obtained, and the proportion of resistant/susceptible plants for the backcross F1RC2 was 1:3.5, respectively, i.e., 28 seedlings were resistant and 98 were susceptible. The inoculum of F. oxysporum was adjusted to concentrations of 1x106 conidia mL-1 (macro and microconidia), with a mixture in the same concentration of races 1 (American) and 2 (Brazilian). The inoculation was performed by cutting the roots in one third of the length, which were immersed in the inoculum during 15 minutes; then the roots were transplanted into pots with 500 g of substrate (organic compost and soil in proportion 1:1) packed in a greenhouse. The evaluation of symptoms was performed 30 days after inoculation, according to the grading scale developed by Nascimento et al. (1995Nascimento SRC, Kurozawa C and Maringoni AC (1995) Avaliação de raças fisiológicas de Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. phaseoli. Fitopatologia Brasileira 20: 214-217.), where 0 indicates the absence of symptoms (resistant), and 4 plants with dwarfism, wilted or dead (susceptible). Intermediate scores were considered to be moderately resistant.

In 2011, seeds of the F2RC2 generation were inoculated for the anthracnose pathogen (Colletotrichum lindemuthianum) through a mixture of the physiological races 65, 81, and 95. The seeds were sown in plastic trays, which contained sterilized vermiculite and, the inoculation was carried out by spraying the inoculum (1x10-6 conidia mL-1) to the aerial surface of the plants in V2 development stage. After inoculation, the plants were transferred to a controlled room with temperature, humidity and photoperiod respectively of 20 °C, 95% relative humidity and 12 hours during 48 hours, thence then the humidity control has been shut down, and the plants remained for another seven days at 20 °C for evaluation.

After inoculation, 100 resistant seedlings were selected, which were transplanted in pots in a greenhouse. Of the 100 seedlings transplanted to pots, only 76 produced seeds, and from this production, the F3RC2 generation was obtained. In 2012, plants of the F3RC2 generation were sown in a field infected with Fusarium oxysporum, and the 250 plants selected were carefully identified, with selection based on resistance to Fusarium oxysporum, upright plant architecture, tolerance to bacteriosis caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis (a naturally occurring, non-inoculated disease), first pod height, and plant lodging. These 250 plants selected in the field were also evaluated in regard to grain quality, considering sieve yield, light grain color, and tolerance to darkening. A total of 49 plants were selected to form the F4RC2 generation. Because the plants had been selected in the F3RC2 generation, the 49 genotypes were sequentially denominated as F3RC2-1... to F3RC2-49.

The agronomic potential of each one of the 49 selected lines were evaluated in the 2013 dry season at the Pólo Regional de Desenvolvimento Tecnológico de Capão Bonito (Capão Bonito Regional Technological Development Center), which is a research center connected with the Agência Paulista de Tecnologia dos Agronegócios - APTA (São Paulo Agribusiness Technology Agency). As of the F4RC2 generation, each line was considered a parent line, and thus, selections among the lines began. From the 49 genotypes evaluated, 15 lines with better yield performance were selected, and a new experiment was set up in the 2013 winter season at the Pólo Regional de Desenvolvimento Tecnológico de Colina (Colina Regional Technological Development Center), also connected with the APTA. In this experiment, only one line was selected, F3RC2-2. The same line was denominated by the abbreviation FAP F3RC2-2 in which:

F: designates resistance to Fusarium oxysporum;

A: designates resistance to anthracnose;

P: designates upright plant architecture;

F3RC2-2: generation in which selection of the line occurred, and the sequence was established to differentiate it from the other lines.

Furthermore, in 2013, the line FAP F3RC2-2 was part of the VCU trials in the state of São Paulo and was evaluated in 14 environments and six crop seasons. In the 2013 rainy season in Capão Bonito and Mococa, it had an average yield of 3,602 kg ha-1; in the 2014 dry season in Ribeirão Preto and Mococa, it had an average yield of 2,550 kg ha-1; in the 2014 winter season in Tatuí and Votuporanga, it had an average yield of 3,635 kg ha-1; in the 2014 rainy season, evaluated in the Mococa, Capão Bonito, and Itararé environments, it had an average yield of 3,505 kg ha-1; in the 2015 dry season, with sowing in Mococa, Capão Bonito, and Itararé, it obtained an average yield of 1,711 kg ha-1; and in the 2015 winter season, evaluated in the environments of Votuporanga and Adamantina, it had an average yield of 4,247 kg ha-1. Considering the mean yield of all the trials listed above, the FAP F3RC2-2 line had an average yield of 3,174 kg ha-1, which is superior to the standard controls IAC Milênio, with average yield of 2,701 kg ha-1, and IPR Tangará, with average yield of 2,780 kg ha-1.

YIELD CAPACITY

From performance analysis of the IAC Sintonia cultivar in the 14 environments evaluated in VCU trials, it could be verified that the maximum yield of the cultivar was 5,750 kg ha-1, obtained in the Votuporanga environment in the 2015 winter season. The average yield for the three growing seasons, rainy (5 environments), dry (5 environments), and winter (4 environments), were 3,533 kg ha-1, 2,047 kg ha-1, and 3,941 kg ha-1, respectively. These average yields were superior to the two control cultivars (IAC Milênio and IPR Tangará) for the three seasons analyzed (Table 1). This yield superiority also occurred for the overall average yield, exhibiting yield increases of 473 kg ha-1 and 394 kg ha-1 in relation to the yields shown by the two control cultivars evaluated, respectively. In spite of the higher average yields shown by IAC Sintonia, a significant difference among the controls was not observed. Nevertheless, the presence of resistance to anthracnose and moderate genetic resistance to Fusarium wilt, together with the quality of grains originating from the parent IAC Alvorada, highlight the potential of the IAC Sintonia cultivar for both growing and for the commercial market.

OTHER CHARACTERISTICS

The IAC Sintonia cultivar has semi-upright architecture and indeterminate growth habit (Type II), with moderate resistance to Fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum), 1000 seed weight of 280 grams, and carioca type seeds with light brown stripes. Its average cycle is 90 days from emergence to physiological maturity, in accordance with the environmental conditions in which it is grown. The cultivar exhibits tolerance to anthracnose (Colletotrichum lindemuthianum) as found by inoculations under controlled conditions in the laboratory and later observation in the production field throughout the segregating generations.

No significant difference was observed among the genotypes for average cooking time (minutes) and protein content (%) accessed respectively by methodologies of Mattson cooker (Proctor and Watts 1987Proctor JR and Watts BM (1987) Development of a modified Mattson bean cooker procedure based on sensory panel cookability evaluation. Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology Journal. Apple Hill 20: 9-14) and microKjeldahl crude protein analyzes (AOAC 1980AOAC (1980) Official methods of analysis of the A.O.A.C. 13th edn, Association of Official Analytical Chemists, US Government Printing Office, Washington D.C. (15.048)., Bataglia et al. 1983Bataglia OC, Furlani AMC, Teixeira JPF, Furlani PR and Gallo JR (1983) Métodos de análise química de plantas. Instituto Agronômico, Campinas, 48p. (Boletim Técnico, 78).). However, for the winter season (5 environments), the IAC Sintonia cultivar had a lower average for cooking time (32.59 min), as well as a higher average for protein content (20.5%), in relation to the two controls (IAC Milênio and IPR Tangará) (Table 2).
