This site received a basal treatment of 1.5 L of simazine/ha prior to seeding. Due to a heavy stubble load lupin seed was dropped onto the surface and lightly incorporated.
High rates of Simazine were better tolerated by Gungurru 75A/260 and CE2/435. The highest rate of Brodal reduced yields in all varieties except Gungurru.
This site was severely infested with aphids and bean mosaic virus such that the varieties Illyarrie and Danja had up to 60% plant death by anthesis. Other varieties were affected but to a lesser extent.
