Currently there is no commercial seed production of Lotus in Australia. This project aimed to develop information and technologies that would allow a viable seed industry to be established for perennial Lotus in Australia.
This RIRDC project has been successful in developing harvesting methodologies for L. corniculatus that can be used in Australia to achieve yields comparable to those achieved overseas. The project has also helped generate the first self compatible cultivar of L. corniculatus which will be commercialised for use in Australia.
