    Fava beans are dual-purpose. As a cover crop, fava beans have one of the highest nitrogen-fixing rates and the large, deep roots break up even heavy clay and compacted soil. For maximum nitrogen, harvest crop at peak bloom and work back into the soil to increase level of organic material. Seeds can be sown in temperatures as low as 35 deg F and plants are very cold hardy. A fast-growing cover crop, sow favas in early spring or fall. Fall-sown seed will produce tall plants but will not produce flowers.
