Lupin time of sowing demostration at Wirrinya and Gunning Gap locations
Aims

To investigate the effects of sowing date on the yield of Lupins.

Key messages

The early May sowing gave the highest yield for the broadleaf Albus Lupins, whilst early May and early June gave highest yield for narrow leaf Angustifolius Lupins. No yield advantage from April sowing at Gunning Gap.
