Agriculture and Food Minister Kim Chance will today open the 12th International Lupin Conference, showcasing lupin research, expertise and products from around the world.
Western Australia is the world’s biggest producer of lupins and this is the second time the State has hosted the conference.
Mr Chance said the event aimed to encourage international co-operation and promote all aspects of lupin research.
“There will be discussions on the future role of lupins in farming systems against the backdrop of dramatically increasing inputs costs, particularly nitrogen fertiliser, and on potential new approaches to manage weeds and diseases,” he said.
