Title: Effect Of Broad Bean Mottle Virus Infection On The Growth And Yield Of Faba Bean
Author: Babiker Adam Modwi, Mardya
Abstract: The effects of broad bean mottle virus (BBMV) infection on the growth, nodulation and yield of faba bean cultivars and lines were studied in Shambat during 2002/2003 growing season under green house conditions. All the components studied were consistently reduced by BBMV infection in comparison with healthy plants. In the green house experiment, BBMV infection reduced the nodulation by 40.9%, the flowers number by 7 to 69.0% the number of pods as between 65 to 71% and the stem height by 16 to 42%. The field surveys showed reduction of number of pods by 60 to 68%, number of seeds/pod by 62%, the weight of 100 seeds by 66% and the fresh and dry weight by 43 and 25%, respectively. 8 When the above data were subjected to statistical analysis, most of the parameters studied were significantly reduced by BBMV infection. Moreover, the present work revealed a significant difference in the response of the newly produced faba bean lines to faba bean infection. Further work on these lines is needed to recommend the BBMV resistance among the high yielding cultivars. Further research areas have been suggested.
