Grains and field crops
Although the value of leguminous crops in the pattern of Western Australia's agriculture has been recognised for a number of years (Gladstones (1968))*, they have received comparatively little scientific attention. Whilst one such crop, the "sweet" lupin, has occasionally produced highly profitable yields, there is nevertheless a high incidence of near failures which may to a large degree be logically attributed to lack of knowledge of the basic agronomy of the crop. As a preliminary to more extensive trials at a large number of locations, it was proposed to study the effect of some basic agronomic practices (and of the interactions between them) on the yield of the lupin species Uniwhite (Lupinus angustifolius).
