Faba bean fungicide efficacy trials – Breeza 2016 locations

To compare fungicides for their effectiveness to control diseases as well as improve yield and seed size in faba bean.

Key messages
  • In a year of high disease pressure, most fungicides did not provide a yield and seed size benefit when used at low frequency.
  • A high frequency fungicide strategy provided yield benefit using a number of products.
