Fababeans (Vicia faba L. var. minor) may become an important crop in Western Canada because they can be used in the place of soybeans as a protein source in animal feeds (Canadian Department of Agriculture 1975). If they are grown extensively it may occasionally become necessary to harvest them in a damp or tough condition during unfavorable harvesting weather. One possible method of preventing spoilage in storage is to dry tough or damp fababeans in a high-temperature dryer. To operate a dryer effectively, the maximum temperatures to which the beans can be safely exposed must be known. Marquardt et al. (1976) showed that autoclaving for at least 20 min at 121
