interspecific hybrid

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius) originates from the Mediterranean region and has become the largest grain legume crop in Australia due to its adaptation to infertile sandy soils, reasonable tolerances to diseases and pests and its use as a break crop... Lupins are used mainly for animal feed markets but more recently interest has increased in its use in foods such as breads, noodles, sausages and other products...
