A STUDY ON CHARACTERISTICS OF FENUGREEK (TRIGONELLAFOENUM-GRAECUM)

K. MIRUNAALINI, S. IVO ROMAULD AND P. BRINDHA DEVI

Abstract

The fenugreek seeds were germinated in different aluminum trays that were filled with fertile soil collected from the school garden. The experiment was done over a period two weeks. Its growth was continuously observed. At the end of 7 days the plants initial height was recorded. The different concentrations of (1% and 5%) bathing liquid and washing liquid were prepared and distilled water is used as control for this experiment. The developed plants were watered with the different concentrated solutions at 15ml for each tray over a period of 5 days. Changes that took place in the growth of plant were recorded systematically over the 5 days. At the end of 5th day, the final height of the plants was recorded. The plants were uprooted and were weighed for their wet mass. The dry mass was weighed after drying the plant for one day in shade, which gave the amount of organic substance present in the plant. The data were processed using statistical method (t-test) to come to a conclusion in which the plant grew well. The organic mass was measured in order to see whether the chemicals present in the liquids were taken up by the plant because this might lead to bio-magnification, the process by which chemicals in organisms at one tropic level pass at the next lower tropic level in a food chain. The growth of Fenugreek is high in 1% washing liquid as can be seen from the t-value calculated between water and 1% washing liquid that is 1.24. This value agrees with the null hypothesis as the value is lower than the critical table value of 2.02 leading to the conclusion that Fenugreek grew equally well in 1% washing liquid like that in water.
