David Bond and Jean Picard: Two pivotal breeders of faba bean in the 20th century

  • Gerard Duc (a1) and Fred Stoddard (a2)

Abstract

David Bond and Jean Picard, two leaders of European legume breeding, died within a few months of each other. On the basis of their agronomic and genetic training, they both met the challenge of breeding faba bean, a protein-rich species that had received little attention from breeders before the 1950s (Picard, 1953; Bond 1957). Both made great strides at modernizing their chosen crop by developing and applying new ideas and techniques, as well as generating new methods and genetic materials.
