Widespread adoption of new varieties can be valuable, especially in developing countries, which tend to lack access to improved agricultural production technologies. However, as farmers adopt new varieties, in situ population structure and genetic diversity of their seed holdings can change drastically. Consequences of adoption are still poorly understood due to a lack of crop genetic diversity assessments and detailed surveys of farmers’ seed management practices. Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is an excellent model for...
