Effect of Growth Habit on Agronomic Characters in Faba Bean

By Salvador Nadal, Alfonso Cabello, Fernando Flores and Maria Teresa Moreno


A change in growth habit in order to concentrate the harvest of green pods at the same date will allow for mechanical harvesting of both green pods and seeds. The ti (terminal inflorescence) gene was incorporated into horticultural major type genotypes by backcrossing. These new lines show shorter periods of both flowering and maturity, allowing for an early production of green pods. The dry seed yield observed is greater for the best indeterminate cultivars than those of determinate habit
