Like grain peas, field beans have been primarily used for animal feed. However, the grain quality has become increasingly important as crops are exported to North Africa and the Middle East for human consumption. For these markets pale hilums, smooth skin, grains free of bruchid damage and staining are essential.
Beans fit well into the rotation and provide a useful break after cereals and with their flexible sowing window, an opportunity to reduce grass weeds.
