Variation in the crude protein content of field beans (Vicia faba L.) in relation to the possible improvement of the protein content of the crop



Variation in the crude protein content of field beans (Vicia faba L.) in relation to the possible improvement of the protein content of the crop



Euphytica 27(2): 487-495



A survey of the protein content of various field bean cultivars indicates a range of variation extending over 16 units of crude protein from 22-38%. Analysis of single plants from within 3 cultivars, 'Dylan', 'Danas' and 'Dacre', indicates that a similar range exists within commercial cultivars. Examination of the progenies of high and low protein single plant selections together with a preliminary estimation of heritability suggest that protein content is highly heritable. No significant correlations were found between protein content and seed yield.
