Renewable resources of oils, fats protein and amino acids are required to increase quantity and quality of edible oils and a good source of protein. Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) seeds have an economic value as a source of oil and protein. Therefore, two field experiments were carried out during two successive seasons to study the effect of foliar application of arginine, FeEDTA and/or hemin on seed yield quantity and quality of Roselle plant. Data clearly show that, all treatments… Expand

Improving the Characteristics of Roselle Seeds as a New Source of Protein and Lipid by Gibberellin and Benzyladenine Application
2 Abstract: Two pot experiments were carried out during two successive seasons to study the effect of foliar application of benzyladenine (BA) and/or gibberellin (GA ) at 100 and 200 mg/L in absenceExpand
Effect of boiling on the physicochemical properties of Roselle seeds (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) cultivated in Mali
Mali was shown. Proximate analysis indicated that boiled whole Roselle seeds (BWRS) are potential high protein source. Moreover, the results of lipid analysis indicated that the seeds were goodExpand
Nutritional and amino acid contents of differently treated Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) seeds
The effects of sun-drying and boiling sun-drying on the nutritional composition of Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) seeds, grown from Malaysia, were investigated. The treatments were rawExpand
Effect of 5-aminolevulinic acid on photosynthesis, yield, nutrition and medicinal values of kudzu (Pueraria phaseoloides)
This study suggests that ALA application could promote yield and quality of kudzu, and further work is needed to determine optimal application rates and treatment regimes before recommendations could be made on the commercial application of this technology. Expand
Effect of arginine on growth, nutrient composition, yield and nutritional value of mung bean plants grown under salinity stress
Salinity stress reduced most yield components and nutritional value of produced seeds, however, spraying plants with arginine could alleviate the harmful effect of salinity at all studied parameters. Expand
Extraction, characterization, nutritional and functional properties of Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa Linn) seed proteins
Physicochemical, nutritional and functional properties of protein fractions and protein isolate (RSPI) from Roselle seed were investigated. The protein content was 91.50, 93.77, 81.55, 71.30 andExpand
Characteristics and Nutritional Evaluation of seed oil from Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) in Congo-Brazzaville
The aim of the study was to clarify the characteristics and nutritional evaluation of roselle seed oil. The seed is a good source of oil and protein; these were found to be 27.78 and 21.85%,Expand
The exposure of wheat plants cv. Giza 168 to high temperature stress (35C±2) for 4 or 8 hours significantly decreased the growth parameters, the yield components, putrescine (Put), total endogenousExpand
Effect of micronutrients and rootstocks on fruit yield and quality of Kinnow under high density planting
The effect of micronutrients on improvement of yield and fruit quality viz., juice, TSS, acidity, ascorbic acid content was significant over control except for yield. The Zn (0.5%)+ B (0.4%)Expand
Antioxidant activity in different parts of roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) extracts and potential exploitation of the seeds
The calyx of the roselle plant has long been recognised as a source of antioxidants. The objective of this study was to evaluate antioxidant activity, free radical-scavenging and total phenolicExpand
