High seed and forage yields, harvested during a 2–year study, indicate white lupin could be a new winter annual legume for California.
Two of the fundamental production-decision criteria, cultivar selection and planting date, were examined. Under irrigation, all seven cultivars produced high yields of high-protein seed. The planting date period that resulted in the highest seed yield was late October to early November.
