Yield and Yield Components of Faba Bean Genotypes Under Rainfed and Irrigation Conditions

Abstract: In this study, thirteen faba bean genotypes were investigated for yield and yield components under rainfed (Maru) and irrigation (JUST) conditions. The results showed that irrigation resulted in a substantial yield increase, more than double that produced under rainfed conditions. The highest seed yield was obtained from genotypes Reina Blanca, L82007-11-3-1, FLIP83-24FB and 80S4387 under both rainfed and irrigation conditions. Higher pods per plant, taller plants, greater hundred seed weight, biological yield, nodule number and nodule dry weight per plant were obtained under irrigation than under rainfed conditions.
