Breeders comments

Coyote (tested as WALAN2546) is the first narrow-leaf lupin variety to be released by AGT.

Coyote offers growers very high and stable yields and is one of the highest yielding lupin varieties across all South Australian, Victorian and NSW lupin growing regions.

Coyote has also shown a lower risk of split seed compared to PBA Jurien and some other varieties, which may help in reducing the risk of poor establishment the following season.

In high rainfall environments where sheep graze lupin stubble over the summer, it is advantageous to monitor crops in season for stem phomopsis. Where the risk of stem phomopsis is high, remove grazing livestock completely. Coyote’s resistance to stem phomopsis is lower than Mandelup, PBA Bateman and PBA Jurien.

The naming convention we have selected for our lupin varieties is Western Australian gold mines, with ‘Coyote’ being a mine located in the Tanami Desert in the state’s north-east.
