VILLAR SANCHEZ, Bernardo; LOPEZ SALINAS, Ernesto; TOSQUY VALLE, Oscar Hugo e CRUZ CHAVEZ, Francisco Javier. Rojo INIFAP, a new red grain bean variety for the Tropic of Mexico. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2010, vol.1, n.5, pp. 681-686. ISSN 2007-0934.
In the Rural Development Districts (DDR), Centro y Altos of Secretaría de Agricultura, Ganadería, Desarrollo Rural, Pesca y Alimentación (SAGARPA) in the State of Chiapas, there are areas where creole materials of red grain bean are sowed, which are traded in local markets where they are produced, as in those of State capital, where it is also traded red grain bean from Central America. Although these genotypes have specific adaptation, they are from low yield potential and susceptible to diseases. In this state there is a growing interest in the farmers for sowing of this type of grain, which stands for the increasing establishment of Central American immigrants in the state that culturally consume red grain bean and to the increase of the local demand for this grain type. On the other hand, when increasing sowed surface and red grain bean yield, it represents an opportunity to Chiapas for exporting this seed type, considering the current demand at El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, as well as in United States of America, where inhabitants of these Central American countries reside, besides promoting their consumption in the country.
