COLLECTION OF YAM BEAN (Pachyrhizus (L.) Urban) GERMPLASM IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN

Two field collection trips, one in 1985 and another in 1988, were carried out in the Neotropical distribution area of the tuberous legume genus Pachvrrhizus. The localities visited were identified through studies of herbarium material. Some 49 accessions of the species P. erosus. 7 of P. ferruqineus. 1 of P. panamensis. 3 of P. tuberosus and 2 of P. ahipa were collected. Plants representing all the material collected were initially grown under greenhouse conditions in Denmark and have formed the basis of the hybridization programme.
