To investigate the tolerance of a newly released faba bean variety PBA Bendoc to residual (simulated) and in-crop application timings of Group B herbicides in comparison with the commercial variety PBA Samira. 

Key messages
  •  Group B herbicide application timing significantly influenced herbicide damage of faba bean varieties. Herbicide damage scores generally increased with delaying herbicide application timing from PSPE to 4 node, 8 node and flowering stages. Although the level of damage in PBA Bendoc was significantly less than PBA Samira, both varieties showed the highest sensitivity to in-crop application of sulfonylurea herbicides (see Table 1 in attached trial report summary). Grain yield results are not presented due to soil variability and poor root nodulation caused by soil acidity.
