Faba Beans

0.00

A very popular nitrogen-fixing legume that tolerates flooding and acidic soils better than related plants. Often used as a break crop, the level of nitrogen fixation in the root system greatly enhances nutrient availability for the next crop in line. This miracle plant also effectively reduces levels of certain pests and soil originating diseases (root lesion nematode and crown rot, for example). Vigorous early growth also helps faba to outcompete most weeds. While the beans themselves are of course desirable commodity, the stubble or crop residue also becomes a valuable source of feed to grazing livestock with excellent protein and metabolisable energy levels.
