Yellow lupin – are annual herbaceous plants grown for forage in mixtures with leguminous and bell grasses. Later than narrow-leaved, the growing season is 90 to 175 days, so some varieties may not produce enough seed unless sown very early. However, green mass or siderates are suitable for cultivation.
Partially cross-pollinated, when growing seeds for sowing, sowing near other lupins should be avoided.
Use: for fodder for green mass, silage (especially mixtures with bell-shaped cereals) and hay.
Accumulates atmospheric nitrogen. The seeds can also be used as fodder, and are suitable for feeding cattle, birds and pigs.
Cultivation features: grows well in sandy loam and light loam soils. Carbonate soils are not suitable, it grows well in more acidic soils, but it is most optimal when the pH of the soil is 5-6. The heat is not demanding, it can be sown early, it tolerates frosts. It is recommended to cover the seeds with nitrogen, especially when sowing in fields where lupine did not grow.
