lupin breeding

Categorised under:

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Significantly increasing lupin yields and the area sown to lupins are two key objectives of the collaborative GRDC-Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) lupin breeding program, now led by senior lupin breeder Dr Jon Clements... Dr Clements says the research is driven by the fact that in regions with acid soils, lupins are still the only rotation crop option: "So we have to make them as valuable as possible.".. Dr Clements says the progress made by the program in recent years has been strongly influenced by the work of molecular geneticist Dr Huaan Yang...

New narrow-leafed lupin varieties will be developed through a flexible breeding program incorporating a broad genetic base equipped to respond to the changing needs of growers and to new opportunities provided by market research and product development... Breeding will continue for major lupin producing environments in Western Australia as well as including novel crossing for supply and evaluation of appropriate material in key environments in eastern Australia... Strong linkages will be maintained with pre-breeding and agronomy in DAFWA, CSIRO and UWA, food research at various Australian universities, while national end-use and market signals from Australian industry organisations will be used to steer inclusion of genetic traits in the program where appropriate...
