Faba beans - herbicide tolerance, MRZ Mid North - Pinery locations
  • To evaluate the field performance of the experimental herbicide tolerant faba bean line compared to the commercial variety Nura and the widely grown herbicide tolerant lentil variety, PBA Hurricane XT, to a range of simulated residual and in-crop applications of Group B herbicides.
Key messages
  • The three crops that were tested, faba bean varieties, Nura and AF15369 and lentil variety, PBA Hurricane XT differed in the level of plant damage and grain yield from application of a range of Group B herbicides applied as simulated residual or in-crop applications. This indicated that a large genetic variation exist between the varieties tested.
