Effects of Biological and Mineral Fertilization on Yield, Chemical Composition and Physical Characteristics of Faba Bean (Vicia faba L.) Cultivar Seleim

Awad Galal Osman, Fatima Izzeldin Abd Elaziz and Gadalla A. ElHassan    

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Dongola University Farm at Al-Seleim - Dongola University Farm, Northern State to study the effects of Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viceae and Bacillus megatherium var. Phosphaticum (BMP) inoculation and phosphorus and nitrogen fertilization on the yield and seed quality of faba bean (Vicia faba L.) cultivar seleim. Rhizobium inoculation significantly (p<0.05) increased yield, seed ash, fat, crude protein and 100-seed weight. BMP inoculation significantly (p<0.05) increased seed moisture, fat, crude fiber and crude protein content. On the other hand, Rhizobium and BMP Co-inoculation significantly (p<0.05) increased yield, seed ash, protein content and 100-seed weight. Application of chemical fertilizers increased yield, seed ash, fat, crude protein content and 100-seed weight. In addition to that, nitrogen fertilization significantly (p<0.05) increased the hydration coefficient. Nitrogen fertilization in the presence of Rhizobium significantly (p<0.05) increased the cookability.
