NEW LUPIN WEBSITE A ONE STOP SHOP


 <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"

A ‘one stop shop’ for lupin growers has come on-line where WA growers can
now access historic, agronomic, varietal and production information about
lupins on the new website.

 

Upwards of 750,000 hectares of WA is planted annually to lupins, making WA
the world’s biggest producer.

 

The website will be a valuable resource for growers, with valuable
information about the $100 million lupin industry, from end products to
growing tips.

 

The new website HYPERLINK "http://www.lupins.org/"www.lupins.org is
dedicated to promoting lupins for:

·        growers and agronomists looking for the latest lupin production
knowledge;

·        buyers of protein grains;

·        processors requiring the highest nutritional value for food and
feed, and

·        educators looking for resources.

 

Developed by Pulse WA, the website offers links to the most current
information on all aspects of research, agronomy and end uses of lupins.

 

Grains Research and Development Corporation Manager, Pulse/Oilseed/Summer
Crop Breeding, Brondwen MacLean said providing such detailed lupin industry
information at a one-stop website, was an excellent tool, especially for
growers.

 

Growers can review the many lupin varieties produced by breeding programs in
Australia, Chile, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and USA that
have shown improved agronomic characteristics, particularly for yield and
disease.

 

Ms MacLean said, for example, growers could now conveniently look at a table
of varieties and review maturity times, anthracnose resistance, aphid
resistance, metribuzin tolerance and grain protein levels.
