Title: Note on the Effect of Intercropping and Rhizobium Inoculation on the Seed Quality of Faba Bean (Vicia faba L.)
Author: Elsheikh, Elsiddig A.E.; Ahmed, Eltahir Ibrahim Ali
Abstract: A filed experiment was conducted during 1996/97 growing season in the Demonstration Farm of the Faculty of Agriculture at Shambat to study the effect of intercropping and Rhizobium inoculation on the physical and chemical characteristics of faba bean seeds. Rhizobium inoculation and/or intercropping treatments significantly increased the ash, crude fibre and fat and protein content of the seeds compared to the uninoculated monocrop control. The carbohydrate content was significantly decreased, whereas the moisture and tannin contents were significantly increased by inoculation. The hard seed percentage was neither affected by the Rhizobium treatments nor by the intercropping methods.
