An aeroponic system was developed for the production of root crops used in the herbal and phytopharmaceutical industries. The variability in the phytochemical quality of botanical products precludes the ability to administer uniform dosing in clinical studies. Aeroponic systems allow the producer to precisely control root zone nutrient and water regimes and environmental conditions, as well as have complete access to the roots throughout the life of the crop. This control promises a more… Expand
Potential for greenhouse aeroponic cultivation of Urtica dioica
TLDR
Results suggest aeroponic technology could be a powerful tool for the cultivation U. dioica as well as a variety of other important herbaceous medicinal plants, however, further optimization of the plant growing environment is required to maximize and direct growth. Expand
Production of Some Medicinal Plants in Aeroponic System
In other to study the effect of the production system (aeroponic and soil production system), an experiment was conducted based on a completely randomized design with five replication. In this studyExpand
Aeroponic and hydroponic systems for medicinal herb, rhizome, and root crops
TLDR
Examples of crop production systems using perlite hydroponics, nutrient film technique (NFT), ebb and flow, and aeroponics were studied for various root, rhizome, and herb leaf crops. Expand
Growth Responses and Root Characteristics of Lettuce Grown in Aeroponics, Hydroponics, and Substrate Culture
TLDR
It was concluded that aeroponics systems may be better for high value true root crop production compared with hydroponics, due to the limited availability of nutrients and water. Expand
The use of aeroponics to investigate antioxidant activity in the roots of Xerophyta viscosa
TLDR
Investigation of the root tissues of the resurrection plant Xerophyta viscosa found that root tissues appear to retain antioxidant potential during drying, for use in recovery upon rehydration, as has been reported for leaf tissues of this and other resurrection plants. Expand
The changes in morphogenesis and bioactivity of Tetradenia riparia, Mondia whitei and Cyanoptis speciosa by an aeroponic system
TLDR
The present study revealed that the aeroponic system could be used to produce clean, high-quantities and excellent quality of roots of T. riparia and M. whitei plants and could satisfy traditional medicine and pharmaceutical industry demands. Expand
Medicinal Plants in Hydroponic System Under Water-Deficit Conditions—A Way to Save Water
The production of medicinal plants can be expanded when water is lacking by using selected low irrigation systems. When using deficit irrigation systems, adequate production can be achieved with theExpand
Simultaneous Optimization of Water Usage Efficiency and Yield of Cucumber Planted in a Columnar Aeroponic System
The development of aeroponic cultivation technology has led to more efficient use of water and plant nutrients for producing high quality agricultural commodities. In this research, cucumbers wereExpand
Enhancement of picrosides content in Picrorhiza kurroa Royle ex Benth. mediated through nutrient feeding approach under aeroponic and hydroponic system
TLDR
Picrorhiza kurroa cultivation is suitable under the aeroponic system for the production of quality biomass and can become an alternative approach to produce quality material required for the preparation of drug formulation to the industries. Expand
Getting to the roots of aeroponic indoor farming.
TLDR
This work synthesizes existing studies of the physiology and development of crops cultivated under aeroponic conditions and identifies key knowledge gaps and identifies future research areas to accelerate the sustainable intensification of vertical farming using aeroponics. Expand

Electrophoretic and allometric variation in burdock (Arctium spp.): hybridization and its ecological implications
TLDR
The allometric and electrophoretic results indicated that hybridization between A. minus and A. lappa is very common and the parental species are probably maintained by the combined effects of differential insect predation on the seeds, differential dispersal of seeds, and reduced seed viability in hybrids.

TLDR
A second case of burdock root tea poisoning, confirmed by laboratory determination, has been described, where the patient experienced mild anticholinergic symptoms which were caused by an atropine contaminant in the commercial preparation. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and radical scavenge effects of Arctium lappa.
TLDR
The inhibitory effects on carrageenan-induced paw edema and CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity could be due to the scavenging effect of A. lappa, suggesting that Arctium lappa possess free radical scavenging activity. Expand
