A study of hard seeds in the W.A. blue lupin is yielding some interesting facts about this important survival mechanism of pasture plants.
The knowledge gained will be useful in future pasture plant breeding projects.
SOME interesting facts on hard seeds in lupins have come from experiments commenced several years ago.
This article outlines the reasons for the experiments and the results with lupins so far.
Subsequent articles will cover subterranean clover and techniques for softening hard seeds in both species before planting.
