Fenugreek, an Alternative Crop for Semiarid Regions of North America
TLDR
Fenugreek genotypes tested in western Canada have demonstrated genetic variability for biomass production andNutraceutical properties indicating that there is much potential for enhancing the properties desired by agricultural and nutraceutical industries in this region.
Fenugreek: an “old world” crop for the “new world”
Abstract Fenugreek is an annual legume crop that is new to North America. This crop has the potential to have positive impacts on commercial, agricultural and environmental aspects of agriculture on
Improvement in the nutraceutical properties of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)
Acharya, S., Srichamroen, A., Basu, S., Ooraikul, B. and Basu, T. Improvement in the nutraceutical properties of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) Songklanakarin J. Sci. Technol., 2006,
A Study on Infections Caused By Metallo Beta Lactamase Producing Gram Negative Bacteria in Intensive Care Unit Patients
TLDR
This study confirmed significant occurrence of MBL producing bacterial infections in Kolkata showing distinct clinic microbial changes in this type of infection.
Proximate Composition and Functional Properties of Mushroom Flours from Ganoderma spp., Omphalotus olearius (DC.) Sing. and Hebeloma mesophaeum (Pers.) Quél. Used in Nasarawa State, Nigeria.
TLDR
The results showed that these nutrient rich mushroom flours under investigation may prove useful in the formulation of different food products where foaming, emulsification, retention of flavour and palatability as well as gel formation are required.
The effect of low temperature on metabolism of membrane lipids in plants and associated gene expression
TLDR
Metabolomics and transcriptomics seem to be the keys towards describing these complex mechanisms and providing the necessary understanding of lipid metabolic response to low temperature stress.
Seed production technology for fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) in the Canadian prairies
TLDR
This two year study suggests that mutation breeding using Tristar seed as a base population could be successfull and swathing of plants before freezing temperatures set in, application of phosphate fertilizer increased seed yield and foliar sprays of chemicals can be used for production of high quality seed.
