Dataset Information


Multilocation dataset on seed Fe and Zn contents of bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) genotypes grown in Tanzania.

ABSTRACT: There are over a hundred genotypes of Phaseolus vulgaris L. grown and consumed in Tanzania. Currently, identification of bean genotypes containing high seed iron and zinc contents has been the focus globally for common bean iron and zinc biofortification. Diversity in seed iron and zinc contents were investigated in 99 bean genotypes grown in Tanzania to identify high seed iron and zinc-containing genotypes for use in iron and zinc biofortification. Flour obtained by grinding seeds of each bean genotypes was used in the determination of iron and zinc concentrations. Data were subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA) to determine significant differences among common bean genotypes in terms of seed iron and zinc contents. Additive main effects and multiplicative interaction (AMMI) and genotype plus genotype by environment interaction (GGE) were conducted to determine stability and adaptation across sites (TARI-Selian, SUA, and TARI-Uyole) of bean genotypes in terms of seed iron and zinc contents. Data in this data article show that some landraces had high seed iron and zinc contents compared to release varieties thus can be used for iron and zinc genetic biofortification in common beans breeding programs. For more explanation of the data presented in this data article, please follow the related research article "Environmental and genotypes influence on seed iron and zinc levels of landraces and improved varieties of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in Tanzania" [1].
