Aims

To compare the performance of current and potential new faba bean varieties under low rainfall Mallee conditions

Key messages
  • The early maturing varieties Fiord, FiestaVF, Barkool and Deep Purple were the highest yielding varieties in 2000. Fiord, FiestaVF and Barkool are the best adapted varieties for low rainfall and short season environments of Victoria and have grain suitable for human consumption.
  • FiestaVF has superior grain quality compared to the other varieties and attracts a premium (approximately $40 over Fiord in 2000).
