Pulse USA gets you the crops you need
Faba Beans is one of our newest crops to offer. This crop is a great choice for high moisture areas. Faba beans do best in cool, wet soils with high water holding capacity. Here are a few management suggestions to help you succeed with Faba Beans. Plant early April to Mid-May. This crop handles frost very well. Faba Beans are a high user of phosphorus, and they respond well to applications. Sulfur is another nutrient that Faba Beans react well to. To optimize yield, apply sulfur. Avoid planting in high testing nitrogen or manured fields. To prevent diseases, use a seed treatment. The earlier you plant Faba beans, the risk for fungal diseases is reduced. Rotation plays a large part in the equation of disease management. Much like peas, a four year rotation is recommended. Avoiding soils that have previously had a legume crop can increase yield and plant health.
