White lupine {Lupinus albus) and narrow-leafed or blue lupine (Lupinus angustifolius) are main species of lupines used in agriculture. The main focus of lupine growing is seeds production, which have high protein content (295-482 g/kg dry matter) and can successfully replace soybean meal in dairy cows feeding (Niwinska and Andrzejewski, 2011). Borreani et al. (2009) described lupins as annual crops that are well suited for short crop rotations when harvested as ensiled forage. Same authors concluded that lupin can be successfully ensiled with the application of a LAB inoculant and therewithal detected significantly higher crude protein content for lupin forage in comparison with field pea and faba bean. Fraser et al. (2005a,b) demonstrated that white lupine and narrow-leafed lupine could be successfully harvested as whole crop, but differences among species and cultivars were found. Qualitative parameters of lupine crops could be influenced not only by species and cultivars but mainly by habitat conditions. However, very little is known about yields, chemical composition and digestibility of these crops when grown under Czech Republic conditions
