Optimal Population Density on Determinate Growth Habit Faba Bean for Immature Green Pod Production

Salvador NADAL, Maria Teresa MORENO

Pages: 37-39


The effects of population density on immature green pod yield were studied during two seasons in southern Spain. The plants were grown at three densities (11, 17 and 33 plants/m2). Immature green pod yields generally increased as population density increased. The optimum density for these varieties is 33 plants/m2.
