" 2.2 Lupin Agronomic Improvement in the Western Region - Enhancing the profitability of the lupin/wheat rotation DAW00099 Start Date: 01/07/2004.. The project has provided guidance on which techniques are best used under various circumstances and environments and how to balance the trade-offs... Results from the project showed that to compensate for the reduced yield potential due to delaying sowing by a week, annual ryegrass densities would need to be cut by at least 60 plants/m and wild radish densities by at least 2 plants/m in low rainfall areas...

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...
