(las) vicias

Following the report on the application of the aid for the production of certain grain legumes for the period 1996-1998, the Commission proposed that the Council allow the scheme to continue, with the MGA subdivided between, on the one hand, vetches and, on the other, lentils and chick peas, on the basis of a 60:40 ratio in order better to reflect the different end-uses of the products in question, i.e. animal feed for vetches, and human consumption for lentils and chick peas.

A raíz del informe sobre la aplicación del régimen de ayuda a la producción de determinadas leguminosas de grano durante el período de 1996 a 1998, la Comisión ha propuesto al Consejo continuar con la aplicación del régimen mediante la subdivisión de la SMG entre **las vicias**, por un lado, y las lentejas y los garbanzos, por otro, en proporción de un 60 % y un 40 %, respectivamente, con el fin de tener más en cuenta la utilización final distinta de los productos en cuestión, es decir la alimentación animal en el caso de las vicias y la alimentación humana en el de las lentejas y los garbanzos.

The products of all grasslands (see above, chapter II at note 22) were reserved for the conductores, except for fields planted with vetches, vicias (3.14- 15).
Una de las especies, Vicia faba, (el haba), es cultivada para el consumo humano, mientras que otras como Vicia sativa, Vicia ervilia, Vicia articulata, Vicia narbonensis, Vicia villosa, Vicia benghalensis y Vicia pannonica se cultivan como forraje y grano de legumbre para ganadería o abono verde.
In our time, the common vetch (V. sativa) has also risen to prominence. Together with broad bean cultivars such as horse bean or field bean, the FAO includes it among the 11 most important pulses in the world. The main usage of the common vetch is as forage for ruminant animals, both as fodder and legume, but there are other uses, as tufted vetch, V. cracca is grown as a mid-summer pollen source for honeybees.

In 2017, global production of vetches was 920,537 tonnes.[6] That year, 560,077 acreas were devoted to the cultivation of vetches in the world. Over 54% of that output came from Europe alone. Africa (17.8% of world total), Asia (15.6% of world total), Americas (10.6% of world total) and Oceania (1.8% of world total).[14]

Vicia is a genus of about 140 species of flowering plants that are part of the legume family (Fabaceae), and which are commonly known as vetches. Member species are native to Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Africa. Some other genera of their subfamily Faboideae also have names containing "vetch", for example the vetchlings (Lathyrus) or the milk-vetches (Astragalus). The broad bean (Vicia faba) is sometimes separated in a monotypic genus Faba;

Taña, como siempre, señala el punto justo donde mirar. Pero dentro del genus Vicia, creo que se puede afinar; o se trata de V. sativa o de V. ervilia. En la referencia que te doy verás un puñado de opciones, pero "veza" parece lo más adecuado (saco "vezo" de la página de Wikipedia de las Vicia que señala Taña)
