LUPINS AND SERRADELLA are not as extensively grown in Western Australia as some other legumes, but they are useful pasture species, particularly on poorer sandy soils.
Virgin soils may contain rhizobial bacteria capable of nodulating some members of the lupin group, but none of these bacteria have been found to nodulate serradella (Lange, 1961).
The use of inoculated seed is imperative except where lupins have been grown before.
