Chinese milk vetch (Astragalus sinicus L., vetch), a leguminous winter cover crop, has been widely adopted by farmers in southern China to boost yield of the succeeding rice crop. However, the effects of vetch on rice grain yield and nitrogen (N) use efficiency have not yet been well studied in the intensive double-cropped rice cropping systems. To fill this gap, we conducted a three-year Author: Jiangwen Nie, Jiangwen Nie, Lixia Yi, Heshui Xu, Zhangyong Liu, Zhaohai Zeng, Paul Dijkstra, George.   For the functional cosmetic agent using acetone extract of A. sinicus Linne seed, the effects of whitening, wrinkling, and safety were investigated. Cell viabilities of Raw up to 60 mg/mL did not appear to have any significant direct cytotoxic effect. The melanin concentration was decreased up to % at 20 mg/mL. When the acetone extract concentration of A. sinicus Linne seed was Author: DuBok Choi, On-You Choi, Jong Park, Han-Seok Kim, Ran Kim. During the process of decomposition, the TC concentration of residues decreased in all treatments, and declined from to g kg −1 (reduced by %), to g kg 1 (reduced by %), and to g kg −1 (reduced by %) for the M, R and MR treatments, respectively ().However, a rapid decrease from to g kg −1 (reduced by %) in the TN concentration Author: Guopeng Zhou, Songjuan Gao, Danna Chang, Robert M. Rees, Weidong Cao. Astragalus sinicus L. (Chinese milk vetch) is an important winter-growing green manure, traditionally grown in the rice fields of southern China, Japan, and Korea. A. sinicus is a very specific host and usually forms nodules only with rhizobia isolated from itself (4), the only reported case of cross-inoculation being with a rhizobial strain.

Several cultures have used it traditionally, believing it to promote long life, fight fatigue, reduce allergies and more. Nowadays, astragalus is still commonly used in supplement form. The root of the plant is powdered and included in various supplements.   Astragalus has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries due to its immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory effects. This article reviews the many potential benefits of astragalus.   Astragalus might cause adverse reactions if taken by pregnant women. Though there is no sufficient research to back this statement, there is no research which says astragalus is harmless for pregnant women. So it is best if pregnant women refrain from consuming it. These were some of the side effects of astragalus.

This field study was undertaken to investigate the optimum recycling rate of the above ground biomass of Chinese milk vetch (Astragalus sinicus L. hereafter, vetch) to improve rice productivity and decrease seasonal methane (CH 4) flux in mono-rice cultivation above ground part of vetch was applied in paddy field at rates 0, 10, 20 and 40Mgha-1 on fresh weight basis to investigate.

The Western Regional Plant Introduction Station, Pullman, Wash., had accessions representing 4.   Astragalus is a potent antioxidant, and like most other antioxidants it deters degenerative diseases and slows down the aging process. The unassuming, legume-like plant also helps the spleen, circulatory system, and lungs. In supporting the body’s immune health, astragalus works best with other herb combinations like ginseng and periodic.
