Details

Nine varieties of lupin were tested for yield response to plant density at 11 sites. The target density in 1991 was 10, 20, ..., 60 plants per m^2, and in 1992 was 20, 30, ..., 70 plants per m^2.

Plot dimensions are not given.

The variety Myallie was grown only in 1992.

Each site had 2 reps in 1991 and 3 reps in 1992. Each rep was laid out as a factorial RCB design; one randomization was used for all sites in 1991 and one (different) randomization was used for all sites in 1992. (This was confirmed with the principal investigator.)

In 1991 at the Mt. Barker location, the data for columns 5 and 6 was discarded due to problems with weeds.

Variety 'Myallie' was called '84L:439' in Verbyla 1997.

The year of release for the varieties is

Unicrop 1973
Illyarrie 1979
Yandee 1980
Danja 1986
Gungurru 1988
Yorrel 1989
Warrah 1989
Merrit 1991
Myallie 1995
