Resilient annual plants that fix nitrogen. Simple to work back into the soil, or they can be cut and composted. In regions with warm winters, fava bean planting can begin as early as the end of January or as late as the beginning of November. The plants should develop until the point of flowering, at which time they should be cut at the surface and left on top of the soil to fix nitrogen. Work in, then let it rest for two weeks before planting again.
