Faba beans Western Region - GrowNotes™
Published: 27 Feb 2018
In WA, faba beans is a niche crop and production currently stands at around 6,000 tonnes. Vicia faba minor is grown under broadscale farming conditions in WA.
In modern farming systems pulses have a role that is far greater than the traditional ones of ‘nitrogen fixation’ and ‘disease break’. They can be a cash crop in their own right, and also a valuable part of the whole farming system, especially for weed control within crop rotations. A diversity of crops in a rotation is important for continuous cropping systems.
