agrafiotis - Vicia Faba

Fababeans is a very important crop, because of the high percentage of protein in their seeds, a valuable substance for the animal feeding. They can also substitute crops that are not profitable for farmers to cultivate and/or crops that are genetically modified. Therefore, animals can consume feed from natural resources.
In comparison with other annual legumes, fababeans are easier to cultivate as by standing still they are of low cost and gain high yields.
The main use of fababeans is seed production, but also they can be grown for green manure and furthermore for silage.
Finally, fababeans are very important for the crop rotation and are suitable to both sustainable and biological agriculture.
