Lupin Western Region - GrowNotes™

Published: 1 Nov 2017

Western Australia is the nation’s biggest producer and exporter of lupin grain, which is estimated to be worth about $120-150 million to the State’s economy annually. About 632,000 tonnes of lupin grain were harvested in WA in 2015, making this the State’s highest volume pulse crop and about 80 percent of total national production. Lupin is uniquely suited to the acid and sandy soils found across large tracts of WA’s grainbelt and has a key role in breaking cereal disease cycles and adding fixed nitrogen (N) to soil for broadacre cropping systems.
