Cultivar selection for spring faba bean

Roth, Philipp

Faba bean grows particularly on heavier soils that hold and supply water to the plant. If the site conditions are suitable, a careful choice of cultivar (variety) lays the foundation for successful faba bean cultivation. Although the number of cultivars available to growers is rel­atively small, several new cultivars with novel characteristics have come onto the market in Germany in recent years. The main differences are in grain yield potential and crude protein content, the level of antinutritional constituents, thousand grain weight (TGW), and to some ex­tent, disease susceptibility.
