Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is one of the most important grain legumes grown world-wide for food and feed. Heat is the major abiotic stress along with drought and affecting faba bean productivity in heat prone areas. In this study we assessed the performance of 140 faba bean accessions representing the GCP reference set under heat prone conditions at ICARDA, Terbol station in Lebanon during 2015 summer season. The accessions were planted, using alpha lattice design with two replications with two checks.
