Root extract from cowpea, safflower and chickling pea also, highly reduced wild barley root growth.
Root extracts of mung bean, sugar beet, chickling pea, alfalfa and sunflower showed the highest inhibitory effect on root growth of wheat.
Although leaf extract of sunflower, chick pea and chickling pea significantly reduced wild barley germination and root and shoot growth, they showed no significant inhibitory effect on wheat root growth.
However some plants, such as millet, chickling pea, cotton and alfalfa, showed more phytotoxic effects in root than in leaf and stem extracts.
However, wheat was less sensitive to leaf extract of sunflower, chick pea and chickling pea and stem extract of ramina bean, mung bean and chick pea than wild barley.
vetch, a dietary staple in some areas of southern Asia and Africa, contains a neurotoxic protein that, with chronic consumption, causes limb paralysis.
Previously, the team linked an amino acid in chickling
peas (which are consumed in Africa and Asia, especially during famines) to a related neurological disorder called lathyrism.

Excess of vitamin E in diet from natural source of germ of cereal grains and seeds (wheat, barley, oat, red bean, white bean, alfalfa, clover, corn, pea, lentil, chickling
, vetch) of cocks led to an increased level of a-tocopherol concentration in the semen samples, which in turn, exerted a negative association with semen parameters such as density, total spermatozoa and morphology.
Trypsin inhibitor activity of legume seeds (peas, chickling
vetch, lentils and soya beans) as affected by the technique of harvest.
