Growers would like more information on choice of the most suitable break crops for their own situation... The results of the survey present an up to date assessment of how farmers regard break crops in their farming system... The reviews, interviews, workshops and past surveys have been collated to establish a consensus on attitudes towards break crops in Western Australia...

Lupins provide a valuable pulse component of crop rotations in South Australia (SA) and Victoria (VIC) particularly on low fertility neutral to acid sands where other pulse crops do poorly... The total economic benefit of release and adoption of improved lupin varieties in SA and Victoria is estimated at $3.2million per year... There is slight variation in the actual lines retained for further evaluation in each of SA and Victoria depending on how the respective evaluators (J. Egan and I. Mock) viewed their potential in their respective environments...

Lupins provide a valuable pulse component of crop rotations in South Australia (SA) and Victoria (VIC), particularly on low fertility neutral to acid sands where other pulse crops perform poorly... Early generation lines from breeding programs in Western Australia (WA) and New South Wales (NSW) for narrow-leafed, albus and rough-seeded lupins were evaluated in the field in SA and Victoria from 2007 to 2010... The total economic benefit of the release and adoption of improved lupin varieties in SA and Victoria is estimated at $3.2_M per year...

" 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...

The frequency of lupins in the rotation has declined but the widening of the rotation has created some advantages for lupins... One year of lupins in four seems much more sustainable and WA still has the potential to produce in excess of 1.4 million tonnes in most seasons... Lupins will remain the dominant legume crop in WA because of their adaptation to large areas of sandplain soils...
