Pulse breeders and pulse research agronomists from across Australia working with Pulse Breeding Australia (PBA) have developed and tested three new varieties that may soon find a place as valuable cash crops within growers' systems... Dr Kedar Adhikari, program leader and grain legume breeder at the University of Sydney, says PBA Nasma is well adapted to northern NSW where it has out-yielded PBA Warda by three to five per cent in dryland and irrigated trials... In terms of seed size, Dr Adhikari says PBA Nasma is the largest of the northern faba bean varieties...

Dr Clements says the research is driven by the fact that in regions with acid soils, lupins are still the only rotation crop option: "So we have to make them as valuable as possible.".. Dr Clements says the progress made by the program in recent years has been strongly influenced by the work of molecular geneticist Dr Huaan Yang... Dr Clements says the team would like to achieve the target of 50 per cent yield increase over the next decade...
