The hybrids produced by this project between L. angustifolius and L. luteus will provide the starting material for new research work to backcross the individuals to parent genotypes and current Australian cultivars... The lupin hormone mix developed during the project produced the greatest crossing success rate, but this was not significantly greater than the water treatment... The project succeeded in producing true hybrids for the key cross combination of narrow-leafed lupin x yellow lupin and this result has opened the opportunity for trait transfer between these important crop lupin species...
