American Landrace swine,

relatively new breed of swine developed from Danish Landrace hogs imported in 1934 by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. They are totally white. Noted for their smoothness, length of body, and lean carcasses, these swine are prolific, fast-growing, and sturdy.

The predominant Anasazi-type cultivar grown in the Four-Corners region of southwestern Colorado was derived from a Native American landrace with late maturity, a vigorous, recumbent growth habit, and high susceptibility to bean common mosaic (BCM) caused by Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV).
This yellow, semi-flint breeding population was developed from CBW II (formed by Steve Eberhart in Kenya from more than 100 Latin American landrace accessions from the CIMMYT and Corn Belt germplasm-elite breeding populations and commercial hybrids available in 1965).

A result of this concern is the Latin American Maize Project (LAMP), which has cooperatively evaluated nearly 15 000 Latin American landraces (LAMR 1991; Taba, 1994; Salhuana and Sevilla, 1995).

Among the South American accessions, a high frequency of primitive traits was observed, previously reported in other South American landraces (Wessel-Beaver, 2000).
Among the American landraces, the South American accessions clustered separately from the Central American ones.
Indeed, the intensity of the selection pressure for morphological variability in Andean beans is again underscored by the contrast with Middle American landraces.
Our expectation that Andean beans would express wide genetic variability was also on the basis of the fact that Andean landraces present several phaseolin types, even more than Middle American landraces.
An additional 89 core accessions from other countries and regions with small seed type typical of Middle American landraces were included in the present study to complement the Mexican accessions.
