Résumé
Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is an important grain legume, as a protein source for human and animal consumption. The increasing need for protein in the world has stimulated scientists to research for increased yield and quality in this crop. Drought and heat are considered major constraints in faba bean growth and production in Europe. The most drought- sensitive growth stages are flowering, early podding, and grain filling. The aim of this study was to determine the response of faba bean cultivars to different environmental conditions during 2018-2019 growing season. Four inbred lines (F-18, F-101, F-10, F-14) and two commercial cultivars (Polykarpe, Tanagra) were sowed in Attika (Spata) on 4/2/2019. The design that was used was a randomized complete block design with four replication. Different characteristics were recorded, such as plant height, number of pods/plant, number of seeds/pod, seed yield and 1000-seed weight. The results indicated that almost all agronomic traits were significally different in each imbred line. Seedyields were not increased significantly among the inbred lines. KK101 produced higher seed yiled and number of pods per plant. Between the inbred lines, the late maturity line KK14 showed lower values for the seed characteristics. This study adopts and implements a holistic approach of the productivity of faba bean cultivars in order to replace soy bean and lead to an increase in production of feed tarriff directly available to sheep farmers.
