Abstract

Western Australia's lupin production has grown twenty-fold since 1977. Lupins are now a valuable seed, feed and rotation crop on light-textured neutral and acid soils throughout southern Australia. Nevertheless, both experimental and commercial yields have been variable over sites and seasons. A major cause has been excessive flower and pod abortion on the main stem. Farmers have often commented on well grown lupin crops which appear to carry few pods
