Fenugreek originates from two distinct regions: the Indian sub-continent and the Eastern Mediterranean Region. There are many uses of fenugreek including use as an herb, spice, flavouring, vegetable, animal feed, medicinal, pharmaceutical, health food ingredient, and industrial applications.
Fenugreek is a self-pollinated, small-seeded annual legume that is grown on limited acres in Saskatchewan as a grain crop. Fenugreek is an erect, hardy annual plant.
More about Seeding
Fenugreek seedlings emerge quickly after planting, but grow slowly in the spring compared to many other legume crops. They do not compete well with early-season weeds.
More about Field Management
Fenugreek is later maturing and matures about the same time as late wheat varieties. A flex header is recommended for direct combing and cylinder or rotor speed of about two-thirds of wheat is suggested.
