Lectins in selected Malaysian legumes


Lee, DW; Yao, VH; Lew, FY
School of Biological Sciences; University of Malaya; Kuala Lumpur; Malaysia

The Malaysian Journal of Science 3 (A): 89-93 (1975)

Abstract:
Lectin activity was examined in 14 Malaysian legumes. Seed extracts of 12 species agglutinated mammalian red blood cells. Hemagglutination was specific to human being. Three species with hemolytic activity were also detected. These activities were further characterised under different reaction conditions; serial dilutions of lectin extracts, and sugar inhibition studies were also used to identify the stereochemical specificity of the saccharide binding sites. Lectin activity correlating with certain pharmacological properties reported for Pithecellobium was also observed.

Performance of tropical forages under the closed canopy of the oil palm. II. Legumes


Chen, CP; Othman, O
Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute; Serdang; Selangor; Malaysia

MARDI (Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute) Research Bulletin 12 (1): 21-37 (1984)

Abstract:
Under the closed canopy of oil palm with mean light transmissions of 15.8 - 5.71% daylight, 8 tropical legumes were evaluated for their general agronomic performance, plant chemical composition and persistence with three cutting frequencies of 4, 8 and 12 months. All legumes declined in yield when cutting frequency was relaxed from 4 to 12 months except Desmodium heterocarpon (syn.: Desmodium ovalifolium) which increased by almost double in DM yield when cut at 8-month as compared to 4-month cutting. Desmodium heterocarpon which was characterized by slow plant establishment and low plant mineral status had the highest root weight, nodules per plant and bigger leaf area to produce the highest DM yield (l 970 kg/ha/year) and nitrogen content (34 kg/ha/year). Although showing constantly higher plant mineral contents and fast plant establishment, Calopogonium caeruleum and Centrosema pubescens, achieved only 29% and 20% DM, respectively, compared to Desmodium heterocarpon. Both species were able to establish good root weight to sustain moderate growth and to achieve plant survival of 36.1% and 38.3%, respectively. Although Desmodium heterophyllum and Stylosanthes guianensis cv. Endeavour and Cook recorded larger leaf sizes ranging from 3.3, 2.6 and 2.8 times larger than the normal, they produced negligible yields. Calopogonium mucunoides and Macroptilium atropurpureum cv. Siratro deteriorated immediately after sward establishment under critical light environment.

Plant Resources of South-East Asia No 4. Forages


't Mannetje, L (ed); Jones, RM (ed)
Department of Field Crops and Grassland Science; Wageningen Agricultural University; Wageningen; the Netherlands

Low-price, paperback edition; Bogor; PROSEA Foundation; 1992; 300 p

Abstract:
This volume deals with forages currently used in South-East Asia or with potential use. Although South-East Asian agriculture is mostly geared to the production of rice and plantation crops, livestock play an important role in providing draft power and for the production of meat, milk and dung. The livestock in South-East Asia comprise about 28 million cattle, 19 million buffaloes, 6 million sheep and 17 million goats. With a population of about 400 million people, it can be expected that demand for meat and milk will increase considerably in the near future. Hence, improved forage production will be necessary to feed the increasing number of livestock. This can be achieved on small and large farms, provided that due consideration is given to the strong interaction between socio-economic conditions, management of the forage production system within the existing farm system, and marketing. 114 species are described and illustrated. There are two lists of about 500 species which have been noted as being used for forage in the major historian handbooks on economically useful plants of South-East Asia. The introductory chapter deals with general aspects of forages. A glossary is included to explain the terms used. Two indexes, of scientific and vernacular plant names, are provided.

Buletin Kebun Raya [Botanical Gardens of Indonesia Bulletin] 6 (6): 137-140 (1985)

Abstract:
Desmodium is one of the most important genera within the Leguminosae family. This is a large genus comprising of about 350-400 species of perennial or annual herbs, occurring mostly in the temperate and tropical regions of the Western Hemisphere, also in Australia and Africa. Some species make excellent fodder, some are used as soil cover and green manure. Members of this genus are important in providing ground cover and for erosion control of denuded, burned-over areas. Plant parts of the species have served in folk medicine as remedies for dysentry and liver diseases. This genus has also an important role in fixing free nitrogen from the air.

Small sward comparison of Stylosanthes and Desmodium species grown in association with guinea


Wong, CC; Eng, PK
Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute; Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia

MARDI Research Bulletin 11 (2): 146-165 (1983)

Abstract:
Thirty-four accessions comprising Stylosanthes guianensis, Stylosanthes hamta and Stylosanthes scabra and two Desmodium species were evaluated in sward grown with common guinea (Panicum maximum) at Serdang. The mixture swards were harvested at 6-, weekly frequency over an 18-month period initially, but subsequently were grazed continuously at a stocking rate of 3.8 cattle/ha over three years of evaluation. The promising accessions based on high dry matter yield, legume percentage, persistence, vigour and basal ground cover scores were CPI 40294, 40255, 33437, Q8231, 33978, 41218 and 33706B. These accessions belonged to the MA-groups 8A and 10B. Desmodium ovalifolium although slow in establishment, was outstanding in vigour and basal ground cover. Stylosanthes scabra CPI 40205 and 40292 persisted well under grazing while the commercial stylo cultivars, namely Cook, Endeavour and Schofield had their dry matter yields declined over time. Stylosanthes hamata cv. Verano performed poorly throughout the experiment.

Abstract:
Three planting techniques with and without rolling on the establishment and survival of three tropical pastures legumes (Stylosanthes hamata cv. Verano, Desmodium ovalifolium and Stylosanthes guianensis cv. Schofield) were studied on the bris soils (Baging series) under mature coconut palms. Spot placement of seeds after hoeing was superior to the drilling and broadcasting methods. No additional advantage from the rolling treatment was obtained. Verano stylo gave the best establishment, followed by Schofield stylo and Desmodium ovalifolium when averaged across the planting techniques. The agronomic implication of these results were discussed in relation to seedling density and soil moisture relationship.

Abstract:
The effect of various scarification treatments on the germination of seeds of Desmodium ovalifolium was studied. Following this a pot trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of lime, phosphorus and Rhizobium inoculation on the dry matter yield, nodulation and the nitrogen and phosphorus content in the plant. Mechanical scarification by abrasion with sandpaper improved germination by 30 %. Liming up to the highest level of 1000 kg/ha significantly increased dry matter yield and nodulation. Phosphorus increased nodule number and phosphorus content in leaves and stems. Inoculation increased dry matter yield, nodulation and the levels of nitrogen and phosphorus in the leaves and stems.

Abstract:
A field experiment on the effects of Desmodium heterophyllum on the yield of peanut and soil fertility was conducted in the Agroforestry Research and Demonstration Area, VISCA, Baybay, Leyte in December 1987 to March 1988. Peanut and Desmodium heterophyllum were grown under zero tillage management on hilly area. The experimental plots were laid out within the strips of four-year-old double row Gliricidia contour hedges separated by IM in elevation on a 20% average slope. Results indicated that yield of peanut grown in association with Desmodium heterophyllum was significantly higher than that of the control. Soil pH, % organic water and phosphorus content of the soil increased in all treatments. Higher accumulation of organic matter and phosphorus contents were observed on treatment with Desmodium heterophyllum.

Kontribusi nitrogen leguminosa makanan ternak pada kondisi ternaung dengan menggunakan rumput sebagai bio-assay

Kaligis, DA
Jurnal Zootek [Zootek Journal] 1: 9-14 (1994)

Abstract:
The main problem of forages especially grasses in the tropical region, is the low nitrogen content. Using synthetic feed is costly. A more logical approach to overcome the problem is to introduce some legumes in the sward as mixed pasture, under limited conditions of nutrients and light. The aim of this study was to find species of legumes that are tolerant to shade conditions and able to provide more nitrogen to the soil. The investigation was conducted to study the potential of four herbaceous legume species to supply nitrogen under shading conditions in four separate experiments. Desmodium intortum cv. Green Leaf is the biggest contributor of nitrogen in the soil.

Rooting density and rooting depth for corn showed a remarkable improvement with increasing depth of incorporation of lime. Rooting depth in no-lime plots was around 20 cm whereas roots grew to 60 cm deep where lime was applied to 50 cm in depth. Most of the roots (73% - 95%) grew 10 cm below the soil surface. However, the small fraction of the total (5% in the case of no-lime plots and 27% in the case of deep-lime plots) that grew in the subsoil, influenced water and nutrient availability and crop growth in a significant way. Extraction of water from the subsoil, as indicated by soil water pressures, increased as the depth of liming increased. Plants in the deep-lime plots never showed visible symptoms of water stress whereas those in no-lime or shallow-lime plots exhibited water stress frequently. On average maximum yields of 5- 6 t/ha were obtained from plots which were limed to 30 - 50 cm in depth. Grain yields from no-lime plots ranged from 0.5 - 2 t/ha. The amount of lime, deep incorporated, produced higher yields than when the same amount of lime was incorporated in the surface. Increases in the grain yield obtained from deep liming depend on the amount of lime and the depth of incorporation. Although liming to 50 cm in depth with 10 t/ha lime gave the maximum yield, data indicated that liming to 30 - 40 cm in depth with 3 - 4 t/ha lime was nearly as good. Most of the benefits appeared to be related to subsoil root growth. Biomass yields showed a very definite relationship to the root mass below the 10 cm in depth. No relationship existed between biomass and the root mass in the top 10 cm of the soil, although topsoil root mass accounted for 73% - 95% of the total root mass. Lime application to varying depths increased calcium content as expected, but distribution patterns before planting and after harvesting were too variable to draw any conclusion with respect to downward movement of lime. Soil potassium data were also quite variable. There were indications of redistribution of both Ca and K within the root zone. Nutrient balance analyses indicated leaching losses for some treatments and net gains for others. Tissue concentration of nutrients varied between treatments but did not show a clear pattern. The total uptake of nutrients, however, increased with the increasing depth of liming.

An ecological survey of the weed flora in the major root crop areas in the Philippines


Galinato, MI; Sajise, PE
Annals of Tropical Research 3(3); 1981

Abstract:
Different root crop-growing areas in the Philippines were surveyed during the wet season to determine the weed species associated with different root and tuber crops, namely, sweet potato, cassava, yam and white potato. Wet season quantitative vegetation analysis of weed species associated with root crops in the Philippines has shown the existence of 8 weed community types, namely: C. rotundus, P. conjugatum, A. adenophora, P. polystachyon, D. ciliaris, D. aegyptium, E. tenella; and D. triflorium. A total of 70 weed species was encountered in the quantitative vegetation analysis. Some environmental factors such as pH, climatic type, soil type, weed control practices and elevation were determined to explain the community patterns.

Effects of flooding on seven species of tropical pasture legumes


Javier, RR
Annals of Tropical Research 5 (2): ?-? (1983)

Abstract:
Seven tropical pasture legume species were grown in pots inside the glasshouse. At the start of flowering stage plants were continuously flooded to 5 cm above the soil surface for 10 and 21 days. Dry weights of shoots, roots and nodules of the flooded plants were compared to the corresponding unflooded plants after a recovery period of 7 days. Macroptilium lathyroides exhibited superior tolerance to flooding while Cassia rotundifolia and Vigna parkeri showed very poor tolerance. Root growth was more affected by flooding than shoot growth. Nodulation was reduced in all species except in Macroptilium lathyroides. The adaptation of Macroptilium lathyroides, Desmodium heterophyllum, Lotonomis bainesii and Trifolium semipilosum to flooding was related to the rapid production of adventitious roots from the immersed stems and branches and to the rapid nodulation of these adventitious roots and the original roots. High stomatal conductance was maintained in flood-tolerant species with increased duration of flooding while high leaf diffusive resistance was common in species intolerant to flooding.

Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MARDI); Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia

BIOnifT Regional Symposium and Workshop, 25-29 August 1986, Universiti Pertanian Malaysia, Serdang, Selangor; p 203-215

Abstract:
Dry matter production and nitrogen fixation of five forage legumes under 64%, 30%, 17% and 8% full sunlight were studied in pot culture in a glasshouse. Significant and variable responses of the five species in terms of plant growth, nodulation and nitrogen fixation to shade levels were obtained. Dry matter production was adversely affected at 8% full sunlight. Root growth was greatly reduced in comparison to shoot growth, hence the shoot : root ratio increased with increased shading. Shading also reduced nodule size, numbers and dry weight and nodule dry weight: shoot dry weight ratio. Acetylene-reducing activity per plant was generally reduced at all shade levels.

College of Holy Spirit and the Mother of Edelwina Science Foundation Inc., CHS Faculty Review 6 (1): 9-12 (1982)

Abstract:
Five Philippine plants were analyzed for alkaloids, saponins, tannins, glycosides, anthraquinones, flavonoids, cardenolides and bufadienolides. Quantitative analysis of the first four constituents were done, using gravimetric methods. Alkaloids, tannins and glycosides were found in the five samples, saponins in four, flavonoids, anthraquinones, cardenolides and bufadienolides in some. Glycosides were found to be the most abundant (.47%-35.50%. Thin-layer chromatography was used to determine the number of components of each constituent. The microbiological properties of six Philippine plants extracted by different solvents were determined on a number of test organisms ranging from the Gram + and Gram - bacterial strains to the fungi, using the Filter Paper Disk Method.

Biological nitrogen fixation under stress environment


Palis, MJ; Grospe, CC; Rojales, JS
DA Research Highlights : 12 (1995-1996)

Abstract:
To enhance Biological Nitrogen Fixation, and to identify nutritional constraints affecting growth and Nitrogen fixation of pasture legumes in acid, and upland soils, Rhizobium strains were screened in 3 pasture legumes namely:Centrosema pubescens cn.Ciat 15470, Stylosanthes guainensis cn.Ciat 186 and Desmodium uncinatum cn. silverleaf. The screening was done inside the greenhouse using the soil core technique. Field strain evaluation was also conducted using the same pasture legumes used in the soil core experiment except the Desmodium uncinatum which was replaced by Arachis pintoi due to unavailability of seed materials. Result of the study showed that strain TAL 651 has the potential to enhance Biological Nitrogen Fixation of Centrosema and Stylosanthes. The good response of Centrosema, Stylosanthes and Desmodium to Phosphorous and Phosphorous + Lime + Potassium additions indicate that deficiencies of these nutrients are limiting the growth and nitrogen fixation characteristics of these pasture legumes.

Timoteo, NN; Soriano, MLL
CMU Journal of Science 4(1): 62-80(1991)

Abstract:
A total of seventy five (75) day-old broiler chicks were used in the study to determine the effect of different levels of mani-manihan meal on the growth performance of broilers. To determine the average initial weight, average final weight, average weight gain, average daily, feed consumption, average daily feed intake and feed efficiency, five dietary treatments with varying levels of mani-manihan meal were formulated according to the desired level and designated as follows: Treatment 1(5%), Treatment 2(10%), Treatment 3(15%), Treatment 4(20%) and Treatment 5(0%) mani-manihan meal. The results showed that the differences in the average initial weight, average final weight, average gain in weight, average daily gain, feed consumption, average daily feed intake, and feed efficiency under various experimental rations were found to be highly significant at 1% level of probability.

Abstracts of Completed and On-going R&D Projects 2003. A compilation p.27-28 (2003); Compiled by Dela Cruz, NE; Roxas, ADC; Garcia, ZDC; Santos, AL; Nebres, JO; Gas, GM

Abstract:
Three upgraded (Merino x Philippine Native) male sheep with mean body weight of 30 kg and fitted with permanent rumen cannula were used to determine the degradation characteristics of commonly used fodder tree legumes for sheep and goat. Fresh leaves of acacia (Samanea saman), arachis (Arachis pintoi), desmanthus (Desmanthus sp), flemingia (Flemingia sp). ipil-ipil (Leucaena leucocephala), renzonii (Desmodium renzonii), sebania-hedge (Sesbania sesban) and sesbania trees (Sesbania grandiflora) were collected, sun dried and ground to pass a 2 mm screen prior to rumen incubation. Nylon bags (internal dimension of 8 x 12 cm; pore size of 47 um) containing about 3 g air dried samples were incubated in duplicate for 0, 4, 8, 16, 16 and 48 hours (Orskov et al 1979 and McDonald 1981). Residual samples were fitted to the NEWAY F-Curve computer software (x.B. Chen, 1995) to determine degradation characteristics of the diets based on the models; p = a+b (1 - e ct) where p = degradation after t = time (h); a = soluble or highly degradable fraction; b = slowly degradable fraction which disappears at a constant fraction rate (c); c = degradation rate (per h) (Orskov and McDonald, 1979). The slowly degradable fraction (b) was re-estimated as B = (a+b)-A, where A = actual soluble fraction (washing loss), (Orskov and Ryle 1990).|The DM disappearance of the selected tree legumes varied at different incubation time. More than 40 percent of the DM from renzonii and S. grandiflora was found to be highly soluble (a). On the otherhand, arachis, desmanthus and S.sesban indicated more 55% of its DM portion was insoluble but degradable at certain incubation time. Among the tested forage, the effective degradability at 0.02 outflow rate was highest for S.grandiflora, 85% followed by S.sesban, (84.9%), Desmanthus sp (75.6%), Arachis (73.0%), renzonii (71.6%). Flemingia recorded the lowest effective degradability of 34.7% indicating the lower degradability of this particular forage in the rumen compared to other forages. Both the higher soluble (A) and slowly degradable fraction (B) contributed to the higher potential degradability of these forage legumes. Among the tested forages, flemingia had a lower potential degradable fraction (36.6%) which was contributed by lower B fraction that indicates the lower degradability characteristics.

Shade tolerance potential of some tropical forages for integration with plantations. 2.Legumes


Wong, CC; Mohd.Sharudin, MA; Rahim, H
Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute;Serdang;Selangor

MARDI Research Bulletin 13(3):249-270(1985)

Abstract:
In a comparative evaluation of 14 tropical legumes under pot culture in a greenhouse, Calopogonium caeruleum was the best in overall shade tolerance followed by Pueraria phaseoloides, Alysicarpus vaginalis and Desmodium ovalifolium. The Stylosanthes species and D. triflorum and D. heterophyllum were ranked the lowest. The best dry matter (DM) yielders across all shade levels were P. phaseoloides, Co mucunoides and C. caeruleum. A reduction in the photosynthetic quantum flux (PHAR) by 44%, 66% and 82% of that in the unshaded control resulted in a corresponding overall mean DM yield reduction of plant tops by 30%, 55% and 71 % of that of the unshaded control. Calopogonium mucunoides, C. caeruleum and D. ovalifolium gave quadratic response in DM yield to light levels with an optimum at 57% of PHAR in full sunlight. In the field trial, Stylosanthes guianensis cv. Endeavour gave the highest annual DM yield at all shade levels followed by D. ovalifolium, C. caeruleum and P. phaseoloides. Centrosema pubescens had the lowest DM production. A reduction in PHAR by 40%, 66% and 82% of that in full sunlight resulted in a corresponding decline in overall mean DM yield by 36%, 43% and 60% of that in the unshaded control. Generally, the five forage legumes were not persistent in maintaining high DM productivity over harvests. Dry matter percentage of plant tops, specific leaf area and shoot/root ratio increased with shading intensity while root percentage and nodule number declined. Leaf and stem percentages increased marginally with shade intensity. Leaf area increased non- significantly under low shade but declined in heavy shade. Nitrogen content differed among species and generally increased among shade regimes except for the most intense shade.

Response of selected tropical pasture legumes grown in flowing nutrient culture to constant solution phosphorus concentrations; II. The rate of phosphorus absorption and its relation to growth.


Chantkam, S; Edwards, DG; Arher, CJ
Thai Abstracts Science and Technology, 14: 131 (1989)

Abstract:
The mean rates of absorption, root absorbing powers and utilization of P by seven tropical pasture legumes grown over a wide range of constant solution P concentrations (0.06 to 264 (M) are reported. The absorption rates by all species increased with increasing solution P concentrations. Endeavour stylo, Townsville stylo and green-leaf desmodium had higher mean rates of P absorption than the other legume species studied. The greater P absorption efficiency of both Endeavour stylo and Townsville stylo at low solution P concentrations is consistant with the ability of these species to grow successfully in soils of low P supply. Centro plants utilized P more efficiently than the other legume species at all solution P concentrations.
