The adoption of bean variety Frijolica 3.3 in the municipalities of Carmen de Viboral, San Vicente, and Marinilla in eastern Antioquia, Colombia, was studied. This region is almost exclusively planted to bean variety Cargamanto because of its good yields and market acceptability. The survey involved 33 participants at a field day held at ICA`s La Selva Experiment Station. Of the farmers who participated in the on-farm trials of the variety Frijolica 3.3, 56 percent decided not to continue planting it, 19 percent consumed the entire harvest, and the rest preferred payment for the produce but then decided not to continue with the variety; 43 percent of farmers considered that the variety Frijolica 3.3 does not have the advantages of the variety Cargamanto, even though they recognized its resistance to anthracnose. Although farmers` opinions differed among the three municipalities, in general, they agreed that a variety similar to Cargamanto should be developed, but with a greater tolerance of anthracnose. Monocropping was found to enhance bean yields.
