Seed source has been identified as a significant factor influencing yield in many crops. There is little knowledge of the effect of geographical origin of lupin seedlots on seed quality and yield, and little indication of what seed characteristics or environmental factors may be used to predict seed quality and yield. We assessed the yield of several Gungurru lupin seedlots from throughout the cropping region of south-west Western Australia to identify nutritional or physical parameters in the seed that may be useful to predict yield potential of seedlots.
