A new high protein lupin that has superior tolerance to the herbicide metribuzin was launched at the Mingenew Irwin Group Field Day in Western Australia today.
'Crop-topping' is the late application of herbicides to prevent weed seed-set.

Information is provided here to assist management of diseases and viruses that occur in broadacre crops grown in Western Australia - cereals (wheat, barley, oats and triticale), pulses (field pea,
Management of weeds, disease and nitrogen nutrition are ongoing challenges that limit yield potential.
Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) is highly competitive in crops and can cause a yield loss of 10-90%.
Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) is a seed- and aphid-borne virus that infects narrow-leafed lupins. It can also infect many other broad-leafed plant species.
Lupin seeding rates may need to be higher for pasture crops to achieve the same target density as standard crops, as lupin establishment density where crops were sown into perennial grasses was 8-3
