A plea for the pseudocereals - buckwheat, quinoa, amaranths



A plea for the pseudocereals - buckwheat, quinoa, amaranths



Entwicklung + Landlicher Raum 23(6): 6-9



Pseudocereals are seeds containing starch carried by plants unrelated to the Gramineae and of interest to developing countries for cultivation at marginal sites in tropical uplands. Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum and F. tataricum) was domesticated in central Asia, gives yields in the range 0.5-4.0 t/ha and its leaves contain up to 5% rutin, beneficial in regulating blood pressure and controlling damage to the retina and from radiation.
