Two hundred and seventy accessions of peanut and 86 accessions of 5 species of other legumes (pigeon pea, sword bean, lima bean, lablab bean, and cowpea) were planted and evaluated at Citayam Experimental Farm in the wet season of 1993/94. Each accession was planted in two 3 m rows with one replication. Planting distance for peanut was 40 cm x 20 cm, and for other legumes 100 cm x 50 cm or 100 cm x 100 cm. Fertilizers at the dosages of 50 kg N, 100 kg P2O5, and 50 kg K2O per ha and lime at the dosage of 1 t/ha were applied in ditches alongside the rows at planting time. The range of values for the following characters indicated wide variation among peanut accessions: plant height (33-60 cm), number of gynophores (1-12), number of mature pods (8-17), number of immature pods (6-16), number of branches (3-7), weight of biomass per plot (51-275 g), and number of flowers per plant (43-68). The range of values for cowpea also demonstrated wide variation for the following traits: date to flowering (37-60 days), date to maturity (68-85 days), number of branches per plant (2-6), number of pods per plant (4-29), number of seeds per pod (12-20), plant height (43-102 cm), and dry seed weight (57-473 g/plot). The range of values for lablab bean also indicated wide variation for the following characters: date to flowering (45-102 days), plant height (40-66 cm), number of pods per plant (10-46), date to maturity (80-130 days), and dry seed weight (18-133 g/plot).

The trypsin inhibitor activity of legume seeds

del Rosario, RR; Lozano, Y; Pamorasamit, S; Noel, MG
The Philippine Agriculturist 63 (4): 339-344 (1980)

Several commercial varieties and experimental strains of legumes were screened for trypsin inhibitor activity. All the varieties of cowpea, mungbean, lima bean, winged bean and the common beans as well as commercial seeds of chickpea and rice bean contained the inhibitor in varying concentrations. Trypsin inhibitor activities were found to be highest in winged bean and lima bean, and lowest in mungbean and rice bean. A high degree of variability was observed among the breeding lines of cowpea. This should suggest the possibility of producing varieties with low trypsin inhibitor activity which will be suitable for processing. Among varieties of mungbean, lima bean and winged bean, there were only slight variations.

Study on the changes of vitamin C and riboflavin during the germination on some species of legumes
Kajian perubahan vitamin C dan riboflavin pada perkecambahan beberapa jenis kacang-kacangan

Faculty of Agricultural Technology, Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Buletin Agro-industri [Agro-industry Bulletin] (03): 28-37 (1997)

Human body can not synthesize Vitamin C and riboflavin, therefore the daily intake of vitamin C and riboflavin have been taken from foods. Legumes sprout is one of the alternative sources of vitamin C and riboflavin. Sprout is easily produced and economically of low price and organoleptically having interesting flavour. A study was conducted with the objective to find out the influence of sprouting on the changes of vitamin C and riboflavin content, and the optimum time and rate of sprouting. Observation on the sprouting of velvet bean, white lima bean, munggur bean, turi beans and winged bean was conducted. The sprouting was carried out by soaking and incubating for 4 days, during which the beans were washed twice a day (morning and afternoon). Sampling was carried out daily during the period of 4 days sprouting in order to determine water, vitamin C and riboflavin content, and the rate of sprouting. Sprouting of white lima bean, turi bean, munggur bean, winged bean and velvet beans was able to increase the level of vitamin C 4, 6, 11, 12 and 50 times respectively, while riboflavin content of white lima beans, winged beans, velvet beans, munggur beans and turi beans increased 3, 8, 9, 17 and 27 times compared to the dry beans before sprouting. The optimum time for sprouting was 2-3 days; at such condition the colour of the bean sprout was white and the sprouts had proper size (10-20 mm) for consumption and also contained relatively high vitamin C and riboflavin. Statistical analysis showed that the increase in the content of the vitamin C during sprouting was significantly different (p<0.05) except for munggur bean after 2 and 3 days sprouting. While the riboflavin content of velvet bean and turi bean were significantly different (p<0.05) during 4 days sprouting. (Modified author's abstract)

Ilocos Research Abstracts;Batac;Ilocos Norte: Mariano Marcos State University;p. 8;1987

The study was conducted from December 6, 1986 to March 15, 1987 to determine the performance of glutinous corn intercropped with different leguminous crops. These crops were lima beans, mungbean, rice and soybean. RCBD was employed in three replications. The cultural practices in corn production were used. The only difference among the treatments was the intercropping patterns. Results of the study showed no significant differences on the final height of the plants, although corn intercropped with mungbean was the tallest with a mean height of 219.53 cm. The length, circumference of the ears and dry seed yield were comparable in all the treatments. However, corn intercropped with soybean had the highest mean yield of 4.57 t/ha. The dry seed yield of lima bean and soybean were significantly higher than those of mungbean and rice bean. Corn plants intercropped with soybean registered the highest combined crop value of P337.42/ha.

Selection of mycorrhizal strains for biological control of Fusarium solani f. sp. phaseoli (Burkh.) Snyder and Hansen on cowpea [Vigna sinensis (Torner) Savi]

Baradas, SN; Halos, PM
Philippine Phytopathological Society, c/o Dept. of Plant Pathology, Institute of Biological Sciences, UP Los Baños, College, Laguna, Philippines

Philippine Phytopathology 14 (1-2): 14 (1978)

Strains of mycorrhizal fungi were assayed for stimulatory influence on growth and protective effect against Fusarium dry root rot of cowpea. These strains were collected from fifty different roots and rhizosphere soils of leguminous, solanaceous, orchard and plantation crops, and pasture grasses. The effect on growth rates and incidence of infection were analyzed using the two-factor factorial in CRD analysis of variance. It was difficult to select significantly promising strains due to the effect of soils and strain interclose interaction on growth increment and infection. However, on close analysis of the results using Duncan's multiple range test revealed the eleven promising mycorrhizal strains, namely, those derived from tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum), sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum), rice (Oryza sativa), soybean (Glycine max), pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan), coffee (Coffea robusta), ginger (Zingiber officinale), guinea grass (Panicum maximum), jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus), lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus). and mungbean (Phaseolus radiatus).

Philippine Journal of Crop Science 23(2): 121-125(1998)

Eight legumes indigenous to the Philippines namely, batao or hyacinth Bean (Dolichos lablab), jack bean (Canavalia ensiformis), sword Bean (C.gladiata), sam-samping (Mucuna prunens or conchichinensis), sabawel (Clitoria ternatea) pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan), lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus) and rice bean (Vigna umbellata) were screened for the presence of alkaloids. Alkaloids were not detected in mature and immature leaves of pigeon pea, jack bean and sword bean and none in batao, lima bean, rice bean and sabawel. Soaking at 60C for 60 min reduced completely the alkaloids. Soaking at 30C for 30 min to 45C for 30 minutes did not remove the alkaloids while soaking at 45C for 60 minutes and 60C for 30 minutes partially removed the alkaloids.
