Description of the subject. Drought is one of the major abiotic factors affecting growth and productivity of plants by imposing certain morphological, physiological and biochemical changes at different growth stages. Objectives. The objective of this work is to study key morphological, physiological and biochemical responses of faba bean (Vicia faba L. var. ‘minor’) to soil water deficit stress and to assess the contribution of genetic factors in improving faba bean tolerance to water deficit…

Overall, sugars accumulation ability can be used as a useful indicator for the osmotic stress tolerant potential in faba bean breeding programs.

Alleviation of drought stress in faba bean (Vicia faba L.) by exogenous application of β-aminobutyric acid (BABA)

The results showed that the application of 1 mM of BABA improved the drought tolerance of faba bean and mended antioxidant enzyme activities like catalase, guaiacol peroxidase, ascorbate peroxIDase and superoxide dismutase and their transcript levels may lead to counteract the damaging effects of oxidative stress and reducing the accumulation of harmful substances in BABA-treated fababean plants.

Leaf photosynthetic and biomass parameters related to the tolerance of Vicia faba L. cultivars to salinity stress

Faba bean ( Vicia faba L.) is an important pulse crop in the Mediterranean region. Salinity is one of the most devastating abiotic stresses that alter the growth and development of plants and affect

Improvement of drought tolerance in five different cultivars of Vicia faba with foliar application of ascorbic acid or silicon

Aim of study: To explore the role of ascorbic acid (AsA) or silicon (Si) in improving drought tolerance in five faba bean cultivars under irrigation water deficit (IWD).Area of study: The

Physiological and biochemical responses involved in water deficit tolerance of nitrogen-fixing Vicia faba

Results allow us to suggest that AD is a water deficit tolerant genotype compared to LO and RM, and suggest potential biological markers useful to screen for water deficit resistant Vicia faba genotypes.

Chemical composition and reproductive functionality of contrasting faba bean genotypes in response to water deficit.

It was demonstrated that WD caused developmental impairment in the stamen and pistil, where the pistil appeared more sensitive than stamen, and the nutrient content of the resulting yield is not significantly affected.

Evaluation of the Morpho-Physiological, Biochemical and Molecular Responses of Contrasting Medicago truncatula Lines under Water Deficit Stress

The expression analysis of the DREB1B gene using RT-qPCR revealed a tissue-differential expression in the four lines under osmotic stress, with a higher induction rate in roots of TN6.18 and JA17 than in A10 roots, suggesting a key role for DREb1B in water deficit tolerance in M. truncatula.

Agro-Morphological, Yield Components and Nutritional Quality Attributes of Vicia faba L. var. Minor Cropped in Tunisian Arid Regions

Faba bean (Vicia Faba var. Minor) is of great importance as it is commonly used as an excellent protein source in food and feed. In Tunisia, the wide variability among local genetic resources might

Differential gene expression reveals candidate genes for osmotic stress response in faba bean (Vicia faba L.) involved in different molecular pathways

The osmotic-responsive genes identified in this study may be considered as potential candidates with a further application as stress selection markers for the creation of faba bean stress-tolerant varieties in various breeding programs.



Physiological and Molecular Characterization of Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) Genotypes for Adaptation to Drought Stress

High polymorphic rate and polymorphism information content values, together with the low genetic similarity observed among tested genotypes suggests a high level of heterogeneity, which may be used in breeding programmes to assemble different drought tolerance mechanisms in one genotype.

Evaluation of physiological traits for improving drought tolerance in faba bean (Vicia faba L.)

Stomatal conductance, leaf temperature and Δ13C are promising physiological indicators for drought tolerance in faba bean that could be measured in pot-grown plants at adequate water supply and may serve as indirect selection criteria to pre-screen genotypes.

Physiological and Yield Responses of Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) to Drought Stress in Managed and Open Field Environments

Water deficit, applied in terms of osmotic stress or drought, reduced the root and shoot length, related leaf water contents, total chlorophyll contents and efficiency of photosystem-II, plant height, grain yield and related attributes in faba bean; increased the leaf free proline, leaf soluble proteins and malondialdehyde contents, and triggered the maturity in tested faba Bean genotypes.

Response of Different Genotypes of Faba Bean Plant to Drought Stress

In the study, genotype “C5” and “Zafar 1” were found to be relatively tolerant to drought stress and genotypes “G853’ and ‘C4’ were sensitive to drought Stress.

Drought Stress Response in Tunisian Populations of Faba Bean (Vicia faba L.)

Results indicated that Mateur major population as Ltaifia and Takelsa minor populations were the most tolerant to water stress, however, Mahdia and Fahes minor populationswere the most sensitive.
