Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
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...

NSW DPI has continued to import and seed increase albus germplasm from the Perth collection for crossing and screening... The long-term aim of this work is to clone the resistance genes and to pyramid these in new albus lupin varieties... (Fremantle, Western Australia, September 2008) Luckett DJ, Cowley RB, Richards MF, Roberts DM (2008) Improved methodology for screening for resistance to Pleiochaeta setosa root rot in Lupinus albus ...

A pulse disease specialist is encouraging mixed farmers who are planning to graze animals on lupin stubbles to check the stubble carefully for signs of phomopsis to avoid the onset of lupinosis... New South Wales Department of Primary Industries plant pathologist Dr Kurt Lindbeck says phomopsis of lupin is normally associated with lupin stubbles and summer rainfall: "The disease can also develop on green lupin plants this is rare," he says... Dr Lindbeck encourages growers who suspect that phomopsis may have infected their lupin stubbles to have the symptoms confirmed by their local agronomist...

By Alec Nicol The researchers behind two new albus lupin varieties - Luxor and Rosetta - say Australia has the potential to be the world's sole supplier of "100 per cent guaranteed sweet albus lupins" - a potentially lucrative position, but one that requires the industry to make a "clean start"... Dr Luckett says the simplest way of giving the industry a fresh start would be to sow only the newly released varieties Luxor and Rosetta next year... Mr Goucher says every generation of Luxor and Rosetta has been tested and all seed increase areas have been at least two kilometres from any other albus lupin crop: "We expect to have between 500 and 800 tonnes of Luxor seed and between 300 and 500 tonnes of Rosetta available for sowing in 2008...

Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 36.. We report results from the advanced yield trials conducted at Bolgart, Dalwallinu, Pingrup and Merredin and the black spot resistance evaluated at Medina in 2008... With the availability of more resistant varieties there are prospects of renewed interest in the crop, but the new resistant varieties are poorly adapted to Western Australia and their seed quality does not match the earlier releases (Sona and Heera) that are unfortunately very susceptible to ascochyta blight...

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...
