In this study, 74 villages were selected and a total of 279 samples were taken from those villages according to the progressive sampling system. Regarding the seed size and color of the materials, 400 genotypes were grouped. These genotypes were sown in Samsun. Description of the genotypes was performed according to morphologic description criteria developed by IBPGR and EU-CPVO. A total of 68 observations were performed by adding some important agronomic traits. Description data for the rest colored genotypes were mentioned in the text. Of all colored seed producing genotypes, it was determined that 54 genotypes were dwarf, 15s genotypes were semi-dwarf and 78s genotypes were climbing. To determine the morphologic variability of local bean varieties of Artvin province, the collected material was divided into two groups as white and colored seeds. 145 white seeded and 147 colored seeded genotypes were subjected to Cluster analysis and dendogrames were formed. As a result of the cluster analysis it was established that bean genotypes having colored seed formed 26 subgroups. All the data obtained shows that this material has a rich variation and could be used for both new cultivars developing as dry and fresh consumption and different breeding purpose.
Keywords: Artvin, domestic bean, description, cluster analysis.
