Fenugreek belongs to the family Fabaceae (Leguminosae), subfamily Papilionaceae, and genus. Trigonella. Different species of the genus have different. Fenugreek presents an in-depth review on the Genus Trigonella and particularly the species T. foenum-graecum L. (fenugreek). It is written by. Fenugreek, the genus Trigonella. the 11th volume in the series Industrial Profiles of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants, is authored by seven Greeks, with one of the.

In Turkey fenugreek seed is placed between cloths to repel cloth moths, while Evans reports that leaf extracts repels numerous common insects. The nodule is the focal point of reaction between Rhizobia and the fenugreek plant. Among the eight Trigonella species studied, all have mannose: Under these wet conditions, in order to help the full ghe of the seed and to avoid the above losses the following actions may be necessary before threshing: Hardman and Petropoulos used a pure culture of the Rhizobium in skimmed milk for inoculation of the moistured seeds, which were dried away from light and heat and sown immediately.

The first divisions of root fenugreek protoplasts were observed after a 3—4 day culture and subsequent divisions gave cell colonies. The therapeutic efficacy of fenugreek extracts in providing sedation has been proved by many pharmacological and clinical experiments.

In particular I appreciate Dr R.

Water stress inhibited galactomannan mobilisation. Page xvi – Act of recognized the class of phytotherapeutic agents derived from medicinal and aromatic plants. In the Middle Ages it is recorded that it was added to inferior hay because of its pleasant but peculiar smell Howard, Galactomannan synthesis during seed development: This may be taken into consideration as far as the time of harvest- ing is concerned, although Molfino believes that this odour is gwnus to the contented coumarin.

The advantages of this cultivar are the simultaneous and relative high content of the four active constituents diosgenin, protein, fixed oils and feungreek of seeds, and its usefulness for genetic studies, as many distinguishing morphological characters are controlled by recessive genes Petropoulos, Serpukhova also showed the polymorphic character of fenugreek and studied its variability in detail.


Hardman and Petropoulos found that the strain R. From the world production of fenugreek it can be estimated that more than half is produced in India. Like most websites we use cookies.

Fenugreek seed development lasts approximately days after anthesis Campbell and Reid, This stage starts from the appearance of the flower bud until the petals reach the length of the calyx teeth. So, a very good five-year rotation could be corn—potatoes—wheat—fenugreek—tobacco. Before the start of galactomannan hydrolysis there is a slight decline in the embryo free sugars Reid, Under certain conditions early fall sowings are satisfactory, however spring sowings are recom- mended for all areas with prolonged periods below freezing, as in Germany where sowing takes place in April Dachler and Pelzmann, ; Heeger, He realises the lack of advanced fenugrewk methods and adequate genetic variability for trignoella high yielding varieties, with greater stability.

The wide and genue pods contain 10—15 seeds, they change from green to a light straw colour when ripe.

Drying As had been reported previously, in warm dry climates drying is effected by simply exposing the cut plant material to the air in shallow windrows, or in an oblique truss on the soil, or in rainy weather on a three-legged wooden skeleton.

Petropoulos and Panagiotis Kouloumbis The genus Trigonella Taxonomy The genus Trigonella according to Hutchinson is one of the six genera the other five are: Corolla 13—19 mm long pale yellow white at the end of flowering periodsome times lilac coloured at the base.

Pods with the mucro beak10—18 cm long and 3.

Also it possesses a very high specific seed weight, resis- tance to fungi Ascochyta sp. Spice As a spice, fenugreek seeds add nutritive value to food, as well as flavouring and are used in soups and curries Duke, Max emphasises their pungent aromatic properties. It was found that fenugreem fenu- greek an optimum spacing of 0.

It should be emphasised that there are many different rotations including fenugreek in use and there may be several different rotations that will give equally satisfactory results for any one soil and climatic condition. In choosing a rotation for any given farm or field its relative fertility, the erosion dangers, the diseases, insects or weeds control, the use of equipment, the distribution of labour, the require- ments of foods for humans and livestock and finally the achievement of the greatest profit from the farm as a whole over a period of years, must be taken into consideration.

Medicinal and Aromatic Plants – Industrial Profiles. To ensure an increase and accelera- tion of the hard fenugreek seed germination we found that a scarification with concentrated sul- phuric acid for 35—40 min gives the best results, trionella is presented in Figure 4.

Although it belongs to the colorata type the stems, the petiolules and the blades of the leaves are without anthocyanin.

Fenurgeek Yemen it is widely used everyday by the general population. The assessment of safe to use starts with the harvested plant material which has to comply with an official monograph. Its digestibility and its fat during germination.

The assessment of safe to use starts with the grnus plant material which has to comply with an official monograph. High percentage of hard seeds and may also need scarification.
