During several years in the bean program at Experimental Field Cotaxtla belonging to National Research Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Institute (INIFAP), located in the municipality of Medellín de Bravo, Veracruz, research works have been carried out in genetic improvement with the aim of generation of new varieties of small opaque black bean. Currently, Chiapas, Nayarit, Oaxaca and Veracruz are the main producers states of this commercial grain type, in which 256 099 hectares were sowed during 2008, mainly in autumn-winter with residual humidity that corresponds to 15.7% of sowed surface in the country. In Veracruz in that year 42 593 hectares of bean were sowed whose average yield was of 730 kilograms per hectare.
