Profile

CELINA is a real protein miracle. In contrast to soybeans, it has a significantly better climate adaptation, a lower heat requirement and can thus be grown in many locations. Due to its unique anthracnose tolerance, it provides farmers with high yield security. CELINA is primarily suitable for animal feed.

Distribution in: AT, CH, DE   •   Breeder: LLA Triesdorf

  • Branching type with low content of bitter substances
  • High protein yield for feed use
  • Also usable for human nutrition due to lower alkaloid content
  • Tolerance against anthracnose
  • With CELINA, the cultivation of white lupins is possible, as it is tolerant of anthracnose
  • Better yield potential, higher protein content with better space stability than blue lupins
  • Deep-rooted taproot and therefore very insensitive to summer drought
  • Very good threshing ability due to homogenous grain/straw ripening and high core build-up
  • GMO-free native protein plant with better climate adaptation than soya

Special characteristics

Greater yield security through tolerance to anthracnosis, the most important lupin disease, which can lead to a complete loss of yield.

Sowing

60 grains/m² for row distances of 12-25 cm

Sowing date

Mid of March - mid of April

Usage

High-quality protein feed for cattle feeding
