Breeders comments

Lawler (tested as AGTP0006) is the second narrow-leaf lupin variety to be released by AGT, selected from the advanced germplasm licensed from DPIRD.

Lawler is a widely adapted variety, offering growers high and stable yields across all NSW, Victorian and South Australian lupin growing regions.

In environments where sheep graze lupin stubble over the summer, and where the risk of stem phomopsis is high, Lawler offers improved resistance compared to Coyote, similar to Mandelup and PBA Bateman.

Lawler is named after ‘Lawlers’ gold mine, southwest of Leinster, in WA’s gold fields.
