The research of narrow-leaved lupine (Lupinus angustifolius L.) and buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) were carried out in Voke Branch of the Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry. The individual selection method developed two narrow-leaved lupine varieties ‘VB Derliai’ and ‘VB Ugniai’ intended for green manure and two narrow-leaved forage varieties ‘VB Vilniai’ and ‘VB Antaniai’. All selected lines have high resistance to fungal diseases, good growing speed at all plant development phases and high seed yield. The main aim in the buckwheat research work was to select good yielding varieties of different maturity, suitable for the local agroclimatic conditions. During the research a new buckwheat variety ‘VB Vokiai’ was selected. The selected material is highly valuable as genetic, breeding and farming material. It will be useful in further narrow-leaved lupine and buckwheat breeding programs and seed production of new varieties.
