Faba bean could be a popular break crop in organic agriculture but serious attack from the black bean aphid (Aphis fabae Scopoli) can reduce the yield significantly. Field experiments performed under organic conditions showed that aphid attack is reduced when faba bean is intercropped with triticale and wheat, On the contrary, damage by weebil (Sitona lineatus L.) and pod borer (Heliothis armigera Hübner) was not reducer or even increased.
