Abstract

Faba bean is a crop at high risk for late season frost injury, which results in reduced yield and marketability. After frost exposure, tannin-containing cultivars showed lower proportions of frost-damaged seeds when compared with zero-tannin cultivars. Tannin-containing cultivars may mitigate the risk of commercial downgrading due to frost damage.
