Herbicide Tolerant Faba Variety (AF15369) - Licence Opportunity



A new Faba Bean variety (AF15369) with tolerance to herbicides in the imidazolinone family was developed by UA, in collaboration with SARDI and GRDC. There was no observed reduction in grain yield of AF15369 when certain imidazolinone herbicides was applied at the five node growth stage at up to four times the recommended rate for current varieties of imidazolinone tolerant crops. Yields of the new variety in South Australia and Victoria, in the absence of application of imidazolinone herbicides, is comparable to current faba bean varieties.
