This is the main stage of development and its duration is 2—3 days. Pod not inflated, triggonella representatives of the species T. However in the growing areas, warm and dry conditions are desirable for field ripening of hhe pod.

Fenugreek is suitable for areas with moderate or low rainfall. Fenugreek is fairly drought resistant Talelis, and fairly frost sensitive Talelis, ; Bunting, The husk usually releases the cotyledons into the soil, but sometimes the cotyledons are not detached and the husk emerges covering the cotyledons.

Representatives of this type are the seeds of the Kenyan breeding cultivar. The process of fertilisation starts. Sirjaev has given in Latin an elaborate and systematic account of its taxonomy. It is characterized by the absence of hard seeds.

The pod, according to the variety, changes colour from green to light straw for some varieties and from green to light brown for others, starting from the tip of the pod to the base. Fenugreek, as an erect crop, offers support in the inter-creeping legumes Talelis, trigonellx, while in the case of fenugreek for forages the intercropping reduces its peculiar smell that causes taint- ing in milk and meat and their derivatives Talelis, ; Duke, The varieties reported in Table 4.

Most of the species reported are frigonella with 16 chro- mosomes. Seeds vary from rectangular to rounded in outline with a deep groove between the radicle and cotyledons, the length is 3.

Natural Products from Plants. The anthers have completely ruptured and there is a mass of pollen on the stigma.

It was found, triyonella England conditions, that the trigonlela harvested raw material of fenugreek stem with pods at the stage of approximately 20 per cent ripe pods, contains 65—70 per cent of mois- ture that is distributed among the different plant parts in the following proportion: Organism Groups see more detailsseed development seed development Subject Category: Although fenugreek is fairly drought resistant Talelis, ; Fenugredk,however if rainfall plus the residual water does not cover the water requirements of a fenugreek crop, then the addition of water by irrigation is necessary and this is significant for arid and semi-arid areas.

Fenugreek was considered a warm- ing herb and poor people used it to gain weight, probably because of the high fat content of the seed Manniche, A significant increase in yields through the suitable use of irrigation and adequate levels of soil fertility could make an immediate and important contribution to farm income.

Harvesting Maturation The maturation of the fenugreek plant, especially of the pod, should be studied before the exam- ination of the plant harvesting itself.

Petropoulos The three varieties in Triggonella 4. These flowers, described in Chapter 5, are usually self-pollinated. Also, fenugreek plants have been distinguished in pallida and colorata type and described in detail Petropoulos, Stages of pod development Triyonella was found that the pod of fenugreek has the following four distinguishing stages of development Petropoulos, This meta- bolic event was followed by lipid hydrolysis.
