Abstract:

Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is among the oldest crops in the world. Globally, it is third most important feed grain legume. Currently, 58 countries produce this bean on large scale. Probably faba beans are one of the best performing crops under global warming and climate change scenario because of its unique ability to excel under all most all type of climatic conditions coupled with its wide adoptability to range of soil environment. It is a good source of lysine rich protein and good source of levadopa (L-dopa), a precursor of dopamine, can be potentially used as medicine for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. However, its production is very low due to a number of biotic and abiotic factors. Different agronomic practices also have an effect on germination, growth, yield and yield components of faba bean. Thus, the main objective of this seminar is to review the effect of seed size and sowing depth on faba bean production.
