Morava

Common Vetch
Vicia sativa

MORAVA is a rust-resistant, late-flowering variety with 100 per cent soft seeds, developed in 1998 by the ANVBP at SARDI.

Grain yield is superior to other vetches in the high-rainfall areas and to Blanchefleur, Languedoc and Cummins in all other areas in the presence of rust. It is larger seeded and more resistant to shattering than other vetch varieties. MORAVA’S BCN level is 0.65 per cent, which is 50 per cent lower than Blanchefleur and Languedoc.

MORAVA produces higher herbage yields than all other common vetch varieties. It is later flowering and maturing than Blanchefleur and grain yield will be reduced in environments with dry finishes. MORAVA is susceptible to Ascochyta blight and very susceptible to Botrytis because it produces very high biomass in wet/cool zones.
