Sowing Larger Seeded Faba Bean
The variety “PBA Nasma” has significantly larger seed than previous varieties released for northern NSW which will improve market acceptance. In trials, PBA Nasma has demonstrated higher yield than older varieties and acceptable disease resistance, as a result it is likely to be widely adopted in the north. The larger seed size may result in additional blockages in some planting machinery, however adequate preparation and setup of planters can easily eliminate these issues.
