Summary: Over the past 20 years, the National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) in Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica, in collaboration with such private and public institutions as the Bean/Cowpea Collaborative Research Support Program (B/C CRSP) and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), have actively generated and promoted improved varieties (IVs) of common bean. This impact brief summarizes the results of a recent study conducted by Michigan State University that focused on estimating bean farmers’ yield gains from the new genetic varieties available in the region.
