The Impact of Organic Compost with Inorganic Fortification on the Proximate and Antioxidant Properties of the Fenugreek Plant

Dr. Neetu Yadav


Abstract: Fenugreek has been used for a variety of purposes throughout history. Abscesses, arthritis, bronchitis, ulcers, wounds, and digestive issues were all treated with it medicinally. Fenugreek leaves contain 86.1% water, 4.4% protein, 0.9% fat, 1.5% minerals, 1.1% fibre, and 6% carbohydrates. It also contains some minerals and vitamins like calcium, iron, phosphorous, carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and vitamin C. The fenugreek, or Trigonellafoenum-graecum L., is a seasonal herb that is indigenous to the countries of the eastern mediterranean and is commonly grown in India, Egypt, and Morocco. It is also known as methi in some regions. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of different type of compost (T1-Control, T2-Sweet lime compost 2 Ton/ha, T3-Sweet lime compost 4Ton/ha, T4-Sweet lime compost with Zinc and Iron 2 Ton/ha, T5-Sweet lime compost with Zinc and Iron 4Ton/ha, T6-Pineapple compost 2 Ton/ha, T7-Pineapple compost 4Ton/ha, T8-Pineapple compost with Zinc and Iron 2 Ton/ha), T9-Pineapple compost with Zinc and Iron 4Ton/ha) on fenugreek. The experiment was conducted at the Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, during the Rabi seasons of 2019 and 2020, respectively. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The whole field was first divided into three blocks, and each block was further divided into nine plots. An analysis of variance for all the treatments in Randomized Block Design (RBD) was carried out. For testing the hypothesis, the ANOVA table was used. Maximum results for all parameters of fenugreek were recorded with the application of fortified pineapple waste compost.
