Advanced lupin variety evaluation locations

The aim of this trial was to exaluate and develop improved lupin varieties for the Victorian Mallee.

Key messages
  • Moonah was the best performing named variety averaging 116% of Merrit across Mallee sites.
  • Kalya yielded well at the Sea Lake site but is susceptible to drought stress and shattering.
  • The most promising of the potential new varieties was Walan2141, averaging 133% of Merrit over the four Mallee sites.
  • Walan2128 and 284AA38 also performed well at Sea Lake.
  • The new release Jindalee yielded poorly due to late maturity and is not recommended for the Mallee.
