What does the Faba Bean Initiave offer?
Scientific expertise of its technical team
The consortium of Faba Bean Initiative includes a team of scientists who have participated in numerous national and European programs focused on faba bean breeding. With over 20 years of international experience, the group leads the development of genetic maps in this crop aimed at the identification of genes controlling disease resistance, yield and nutritional quality characteristics.
Faba bean breeding
Our faba bean collections include materials resistant to broomrape (Orobanche crenata), and to the most common diseases affecting the crop. These are a promising source for the development of new resistant varieties.
If you have a variety with problems of productivity, disease or environmental adaptation, Faba Bean Initiative can provide you with a solution through the development of new varieties.
