Abstract Este artículo argumenta que los resultados no intencionales de la generación
de un cultivar de lupino (Lupinus mutabilis Sweet) se forjaron en el mismo momento en que se concibió y organizó el proyecto de fitomejoramiento. Más específicamente la racionalidad social, inmersa en los programas de científicos de la agricultura moderna, guiaron el diseño del nuevo cultivar y produjeron una variedad de lupino en que otras semillas, racionalidades, espacios y actores fueron excluidos. Para sostener este argumento en este artículo se parte de dos premisas metodológicas: primera, el cultivar puede ser entendido como un objeto tecnológico y, segunda, los artefactos no pueden ser entendidos individualmente, son parte de un sistema integral y por tanto es posible
trazar una bitácora que dé cuenta de la trayectoria seguida.

This article looks at how the generation of a cultivar may have unintended results forged as a plant breeding project is conceived and organized. Specifically, we investigate how a social rationality immersed in the scientific programs of modern agriculture guided the design of a new cultivar of lupine (Lupinus mutabilis Sweet), wherein which other seeds, rationales, spaces and actors were excluded. To develop this argument, we employ two methodological premises: cultivars can be understood as technological objects, and artefacts cannot be understood individually, since they are part of an integrated system.
