Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The faba bean is one of the major pulse crops in the Southern Region and has potential for expansion in the Western Region... The breeding program has developed a large pool of material that combines resistance to ascochyta blight and chocolate spot, and lines with high yield potential have been identified... Improved faba bean varieties, released during project UA00079, or released from breeding lines developed, evaluated and multiplied during this project, will benefit the cropping industries in the higher rainfall districts of the Southern and Western Regions through: higher and more reliable yields improved levels of disease resistance leading to lower costs of production and reduced management inputs improved marketability due to improved seed quality greater sustainability of the farming system due to increased inclusion of faba beans in rotations...

Catalogue: GRDC Updates (West)
Varieties differ in their response to management inputs, especially for the important grain receival traits hectolitre weight, screenings and grain brightness... Screenings of plump grained varieties is generally less sensitive to delays in seeding date or increases in applied N than the screenings of narrow grain varieties... Example of differences in the screenings (% < 2.5 mm) response of 4 varieties (Bass, Baudin, Buloke and Vlamingh) to increasing N fertiliser application for two locations where the V x N interaction was significant: (L) Wittenoom Hills, 2010 and (R) Yerecoin, 2011...
