Fenugreek seed development lasts approximately days after anthesis Campbell and Reid, Therefore, it is an important crop for those countries in the Middle and Far East where meatless diets are customary for cultural and religious reasons.

Also, it was found that every time Information on the breeding work that has been performed on fenugreek for the creation of improved varieties is scanty. Also, drying in high temperatures, sets up stresses between the inner and outer areas of the fenugreek seed particularly at high moisture levels, which can result in the severe cracking of the seed coat, especially in the sensitive Fluorescent cultivar Petropoulos, Although fenugreek is fairly drought resistant Talelis, ; Duke,however if rainfall plus the residual water does not cover the water requirements of a fenugreek crop, then the addition fenygreek water by irrigation is necessary and this is significant for arid and semi-arid areas.

There are several factors that regulate galactomannan mobilisation. However, experiments performed with whole carob endosperms have shown that under water stress con- ditions, the diffusion of these hydrolases into the endosperm incubation medium was inhibited. Previous record Next record. Time of harvesting It is evidently important to harvest fenugreek crop for forage at the time that will allow the greatest yield, and at the same time ensure a product of high quality.

Appropriate mea- sures to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of these either already exist or are being answered by greater legislative control by such bodies as the Food and Drug Administration of the USA and the recently created European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products, based in London.

For shallow sowing depths and low moisture conditions compaction may be necessary with a corrugated roller. In some parts of Tirol sweet trefoil is used for flavouring the bread called Brotwnrze.

It has less starch and polysaccharides are present in the form of silico-phosphoric ester of manogalactan, which is not hydrolyzed by ptyalin or pancreatic amylase Kamel,and fenugreek seeds have an insulin stimulating substance Hillaire-Buys et al. Its digestibility and its fat during germination. Rotation In the pure crops a rotation system is usually applied where the growing of different crops takes place in a regular order or sequence, and the means of preceding and following crops are used.

The genotype HFM 39 in particular gave a significantly higher yield over the control and so it was strongly recommended to be included in future breeding programs. The varieties reported in Table 4. It must be emphasised that when turmeric main crop was intercropped with fenugreek first intercrop the highest net income was obtained in compar- ison with other applied combinations of turmeric intercropping Sekar trigoneloa Muthuswami, In some parts of Pakistan and India T.

Seeds vary from rectangular to rounded in outline with a deep gebus between the radicle and cotyledons, the length is 3. The significance of these applications was that each Chinese preparation involved several plants and yet was handled as a single IND.

Pod not inflated with representatives of the species T. Hardman and Petropoulos found that the strain R. Actions Tools Choose a colour. Page xv – Drought in the country of origin has forced up prices.

Furry also divided the cultivated species of the genus Trigonella, according to the colour of the corolla and other characters, as follows: Ethiopian College of Agric. Regeneration of shoots have also been achieved from fenugreek protoplasts Xu et al.
