  Background and Objective: Legumes play an important role in human nutrition since they are rich sources of protein, calories, minerals and vitamins and therefore can be good supplements. In order to extant shelf life and reduce loss of faba bean seeds during storage of 9 months, the different doses of ultraviolet irradiation were used. The main purpose of the present study was to observe the effect of Ultraviolet irradiation times on faba bean seed quality. Materials and Methods: The seeds of faba bean were investigated in the experiment. Three irradiation times of UVC investigated were of 30, 60 and 90 min of exposure times were used, also and 0 min for treatment without irradiation. During storage period, chemical, physical and mechanical analysis changes were determined. Results: (a) The main dimensions, mass and bulk volume and true volume were decreased by increasing the storage period and decreasing ultraviolet irradiation time. Meanwhile, the bulk and true density were increased by increasing storage period and decreasing ultraviolet irradiation time and (b) The protein, moisture content, fat and fiber were increased. While, the ash and carbohydrate were decreased with increasing storage period. Conclusion: This technique extend the shelf-life of the faba bean grains, reduce the loss of faba bean grains during storage period of nine months and use the Ultraviolet technique as a clean source without pesticide, which lead to keep the storage environment without any pollution. Our findings suggest that exposure for UV may favour external treatment with particular by light environment, to preserve faba bean seeds with high quality.
