Faba Bean Southern Region - GrowNotes™

Published: 1 Mar 2017

Faba bean and broad bean account for 10–15% of the annual Australian pulse crop, with between 152,000 and 230,000 hectares planted each year. Approximately 370,000 tonnes are produced annually. The southern region grows 70% of Australia’s faba bean by area sown. More recently the area planted has increased, with improved varieties with better disease management packages and better market prices. In addition, growers now recognise the contribution of pulses to managing weeds and diseases in the overall rotation.
