It is now well known that lupinosis of sheep and cattle follows ingestion of lupin stubble colonised by the fungus Phomopsis rossiana. The fungus infects green lupins but persists on the stubble and under certain conditions apparently produces a toxin which causes the disease.
As Phomopsis is now widespread on lupins in Western Australia its ecology has been studied in detail as a basis for possible control measures.
This article outlines what is known so far of the disease and its control.
