Astragalus membranaceus roots have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat diseases. A field experiment was established to assess the growth, root development and astragaloside IV concentration of seven varieties of Astragalus membranaceus in Auburn, Alabama. Significant differences among varieties were observed in concentration of Mn and Zn. Accessions AM2, AM3, AM4 and AM5 had the best adaptability in terms of shoot growth, root weight and concentration and…
