White Lupin is the second most valuable protein crop, after soybean. It tolerates heavier soil and has a high yield potential. Avoiding anthracnose is the key to success in white lupin and essential cultivation practices include the use of healthy, certified seed, sowing as early as possible and using the right cultivar. The most important experiences from organic farming are summarized in this Legumes Translated practice note, including practical information on the ideal site, inoculation, sowing, cultivation and harvest. The tool is specific to organic farmers in Europe.

Summary translation

Weisse Lupinen (Lupinus albus) sind eine andere botanische Art als schmalblättrige oder „blaue“ Lupinen (Lupinus angustifolius). Sie vertragen schwerere Böden und haben ein höheres Ertragspotential, reifen allerdings erst im August/September. Wichtig für ihren Anbau ist die Verwendung von gesundem, zertifizierten Saatgut, eine möglichst frühe Aussaat und die richtige Sortenwahl, um eine Infektion mit der Pilzkrankheit Anthraknose, die über das Saatgut verbreitet wird, zu vermeiden.
In diesem Legumes Translated-Merkblatt werden die wichtigsten Erfahrungen aus dem ökologischen Anbau zusammengefasst.
