ICB-3 (previously tested as I9322-37b, I9365-33, H9652-2, and ICB-3-8) is a small opaque black bean developed from an interspecific "Population IV" (Great Northern #1, Sel 27/Pc-37) using single-plant selection in the greenhouse for resistance to Xcp strain 484a (three generations) and intermittent progeny row selection in the field for moderate maturity, good yield potential, and resistance to rust and ashy stem blight. Population IV was cooperatively released in 1985 by the USDA-ARS and the Agricultural Experiment Stations of Puerto Rico and Florida, as a heterogeneous F8 bulk possessing different disease resistances, plant habits and seed sizes, shapes and colors (1).
