SHANKY BHAT

Abstract

The use of green plants to remove, inactivate, accumulate, or degrade harmful environmental contaminants is termed as phytoremediation, which is an emerging technology. Berseem is useful in phytoremidiation of Cd, Pb,Zn and Cu. Berseem is the most vital fodder crop of India. It is easily digestible, very nutritive, and highly palatable to all farm animals. Since it is a leguminous crop, it also enriches soil fertility. Berseem a is rich source of CLA (conjugated Linoleic acid) which is a mixture of linoleic acid isomers, geometric isomers and primarily position. CLA has anti cancer efficacy at concentrations close to human consumption levels.
