Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) is an annual legume mainly used as a spice crop in many parts of the world. "Tristar" is a new forage cultivar that requires -120 days to produce mature seed in western Canada where only -100 frost-free days are available. The goal for this study was to reduce maturity duration for the crop through a series of studies on the genetics and agronomic aspects of fenugreek. This two year study suggests that: 1) mutation breeding using Tristar seed as a base… 
Genetic improvement of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) through EMS induced mutation breeding for higher seed yield under western Canada prairie conditions
TLDR
This is the first report on successful use of mutation breeding for improvement in quantitative traits in fenugreek and detects new breeding material exhibiting early seed maturity coupled with high seed yield, seed quality and determinate growth habit.

TLDR
Although the digestibility of the FEN diets was not different from that of the ALF diet, fenugreek haylage has a lower feeding value than ALF for lactating dairy cows due in part to lower DMI and subsequently lower milk yield.

Weed management in irrigated fenugreek grown for forage in rotation with other annual crops
TLDR
Experiments established to determine the tolerance of fenugreek to several herbicides and their efficacy on various weeds found that total forage samples with a low weed content had lower fibre content and higher protein and digestible dry matter content than forages with a high weed content.
