A pot trial was conducted under greenhouse conditions to investigate the differences between Vicia faba Erfano and Fribo and Pisum sativum Renata, Grapis, Erbi, Binar, Nadja and subtropical varieties F and G in terms of pod-filling using fixed N2. Lower leaf death rate, root nodule number and the percentage of N2 fixed during pod-filling of the total amount of N2 fixed, were determined. Erfano and Fribo fixed ~75 % of the total amount of fixed N during pod-filling.
