There you will be able to see the full diversity of lupin species with field trials of Lupinus angustifolius, L. luteus, L. albus and L. mutabilis. There will be several presentations on current projects and topics involving genetic resources, alkaloids, prebreeding, intercropping etc. From the field, the buses will take us further.

At the breeding station in Bocksee you will also get insights about the UFOP e.V., ProLupin GmbH and INP Institute:


Logo UFOPUFOP (Union for the Promotion of Oil and Protein Plants) represents the political interests of companies, associations, and institutions that are involved in the production, processing and marketing of domestic oil and protein plants in national and international committees.


ProLupinProlupin GmbH is a company, which evolved from a joint project with Fraunhofer Institute (IVV) and focuses on protein extraction from sweet lupins. The isolated protein is used in several products like lupin milk, ice cream or yogurts and is marketed under the label “Made with Luve”. Here, we will see a presentation about the company and hopefully get the chance to taste some of their famous lupin products.


 The Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology e.V. (INP) is one of the leading research institutes in the area of physical plasma, its basics and applications. It is the largest non-university institute in Europe in the field of low temperature plasmas, employing about 200 scientists, engineers and other specialised personnel. At present, plasmas for materials and energy, environment and bioeconomy and hygiene and health, are the focus of interest.


Afterward we will have a classic German BBQ with drinks organized by Saatzucht Steinach and UFOP until the buses take us back to Rostock.
