SSNS – 1 Faba bean
Faba beans are increasingly used by both conventional and organic growers in green manure and cover crop mixes to improve soil health and fertility. SSNS-1 is unique as one of the smallest faba bean varieties available, thus requiring a lower seeding rate.
Growers operating on dryland systems in the southern part of Canada and mid to northern regions of the USA find that grain yields are strong thanks to a larger seed size and uniform plant structure.
