Vicia hirsuta is a ANNUAL growing to 0.5 m (1ft 8in). Ervum hirsutum L. Biological group. Table of contents. V. EDDMapS Distribution - This map is incomplete and is based only on current site and county level reports made by experts, herbaria, and literature. to investigate anti-inflammatory activities of Vicia canescence and Vicia hirsuta aerial parts. Identification; Habitat; Control; Range; Harvesting; Eating; Hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta) is a really unfortunate name for a wonderfully tasty edible weed that is perfect for foraging.It's a wild mustard, so its bitterness is more spicy-hot than bitter, though it's not nearly as hot as some other members of the Brassicaceae family.. The aim of this investigation was to determine the potential of naturally occurring raw salts like kainite for specific control of Vicia hirsuta, a harmful weed in Organic Farming. It is hardy to zone (UK) 5. Leaves are terminated with simple or branchy tendril. The plant is … For more information, visit www.eddmaps.org Family Fabaceae, genus Vicia L. Synonym. Stems dispersly decumbent-hirsute, extending or rising, tetrahedral. The effect was dose-dependent. Combinations of three different direct methods for controlling Vicia hirsuta (kainite application, flame weeding and harrowing) were investigated in field experiments. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and is pollinated by Bees, Lepidoptera (Moths & Butterflies). An aqueous extract of V. hirsuta was applied to an ODS column with increasing concentrations of methanol in water as eluant to give six fractions. It is in flower from May to August, and the seeds ripen from July to September. At all tested doses, extract produced statistically significant inhibition of inflammation when compared to the control group. Vicia hirsuta plants that survived kainite application or flame weeding were successfully controlled by repeated harrowing at later crop growth stages; crop growth was not affected. They were based on different strategies at early growth stages of V. hirsuta and standardised harrowing at late growth stages. Inhibition of carrageenan induced edema was used to evaluate anti-inflammatory activity. Significantly different from control Vicia angustifolia crude extract (1.0 gle/ml) at p = 0.05 using the Mann–Whitney U test.
