Abstract/OtherAbstract:
AIM: In this study, aimed at assessing the safety of coriander as food ingredient, we investigated the phytotoxicity of fruit extracts on Triticum aestivum L.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: We studied the effects of methanolic coriander fruit extracts, Omagiu cultivar (VI-V3; three dilutions: 1%, 2.5% and 5% in distilled water), upon germination, elongation, and accumulation of fresh and dry biomass in the plants; also it was investigated the influence of the extracts on mythosis in root tissues.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS: The extracts did not influence the germination and growth of test plants and did not inhibit root and shoot elongation of wheat plants (a 20% increase in root length over the control being registered for V2 1%). Frequency of aberrant anaphases and telophases in Triticum aestivum L. varied slightly around the percentage of the control, the highest percent of aberrant chromosomes (5.07 %) being observed in V3 2.5%.
CONCLUSIONS: The investigated coriander fruit extracts did not have phytotoxic effects but had a slight stimulating effect on germination and growth of Triticum aestivum L.
