lupin breeding program

Categorised under:

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Narrow-leafed lupins have major advantages as a rotational crop in cereal cropping systems, contributing to nitrogen fixation and offering a quality feed product with existing high export markets... The project involves assembly of an HT gene construct sourced from GRDC, rapid insertion to an elite lupin cultivar, thorough genetic characterization and initial agronomic evaluation of HT-lines... We anticipate that HT lupins will contribute to revive the lupin industry and diversify grain growing systems particularly in WA...

The project will continue collaborative arrangements with the Department of Agriculture and Food WA lupin breeding program to supply seed of breeders' lines for early generation evaluation in SA and Victoria... Each year WA will supply new narrow-leafed lupin lines to SA and Victoria to allow early generation evaluation... Evaluation sites across lupin districts of SA and Victoria will be supported, culminating in identification and release of new lupin varieties with superior yield performance, quality and disease characteristics for grain growers in these States...

Lupin is the most important grain legume in Australia for acid, well drained, light textured soils in southern Australia... Prices received for lupins over the past 10 years has averaged only $250/tonne... Efforts to both increase the price in world commodity markets as well as increasing grain yield in lupins are needed to enhance the appeal of lupins as a profitable and sustainable crop option in farming systems...
