Many farmers face urgent problems of making sure there is enough food for their families for the whole year and earning sufficient income. Population growth and the increasing size of cities and towns mean that the amount of land available to grow food for each family is decreasing.

Bean anthracnose, caused by the fungus Colletotrichum lindemuthianum, is a major disease of beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), causing serious crop loss in many parts of the world. In 1921, M. F. Barrus of Cornell University demonstrated that bean anthracnose is seedborne. This information resulted in the widespread use of anthracnose-free seed and a subsequent decline in the ocurrance of bean anthracnose in the United States.
