Aims
  • To determine the correct maturity timing for successful crop-topping practice and to identify lines suitable for crop-topping, showing minimal yield loss in faba bean.
Key messages
  • Similarly to previous (2013) trials, there was no interaction between crop-top timing and variety. This means that the varieties evaluated in these trials had the same grain yield response at the different crop-top timings; therefore no variety was better suited to crop-topping than another. This finding has been consistent in faba beans over time but different to all other crops (lentil, field pea, chickpea).
