Poisoning occurs when animals, including humans, ingest broken seeds or break the seed by chewing: The results presented in Tab. Irrigation depth was quantified by using graduated cylinders and corresponded to the total ricknus of water added higueilla to measure deep drainage depth, after irrigating, the accumulated water collected in the trays installed under the pots was quantified by using a graduated cylinder.

In addition to the high potential of castor bean for oil production, which has a wide range of applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and the possibility of its usage as raw material for biofuel production Savy Filho,castor bean by-products can also be used.

Larcher pointed out that interruption in the vegetative growth as a function of production acceleration occur due to the energy canalization and materials destined to flowering and fruit production, which in turn are originated in the photosynthetic process, incorporation of mineral substances and mobilization of reserves to produce fruits.

Traditional Ayurvedic and communie medicine higuwrilla castor oil the king of medicinals for curing arthritic diseases.

The time for flowering onset and the primary raceme insertion height were significantly influenced by the soil water tension Table 2. The evolution of castor and its relation to other species are currently being studied using modern genetic tools.

Plant height was measured from the substrate surface to the youngest leaf point of insertion, and also the stem diameter using a caliper ruler at 0. The fruit capsules of some varieties are more showy than the flowers.

The opposite was seen in plants of T3, which presented lower primary raceme insertion height The aim was to evaluate their heat value and reviewing the results, detect factors that contribute to any difference which will aid to select the most promising plant, in order to research for genetic potential. Although the lethal dose in adults is considered to be four to eight seeds, reports of actual poisoning are relatively rare.


The Bodo tribals of Bodoland in Assam, India, use the leaves of this plant to feed and rear the larvae of muga and endi silkworms. Furthermore, the completion of the harvest which determines the cycle of the crop of castor, did not show marked differences between native materials days on averagewhich proved to be more precocious than the commercial genotype statistically significant difference, culminating the growth cycle in days.

The highest values of the percentage of oil yield improved material presented in the two planting distances, values statistically higher than those obtained with native materials. Maintaining soil moisture at the initial stage of its growth is essential, as restrictions at this stage will possibly impact the plant development.

The values obtained for plant height, seed production and oil yield for each material densities subplot A: Al Guaranyindicated by the lower time necessary to its reproductive phase onset and lower primary raceme insertion height.

riciuns Herodotus and other Greek travellers noted the use of castor seed oil for lighting, body ointments, and improving hair growth and texture. Solo, Planta e Atmosfera: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Castor oil is distinguished from others by its high rate of acetyl or hydroxyl, and other oils with similar iodine because of its high density. The male flowers are numerous, yellowish-green with prominent creamy stamens ; the female flowers, borne at the tips of the spikes, lie within the immature spiny capsules, are relatively few in number and have prominent red stigmas. Retrieved 9 October Del Castillo y C. Throughout the analysis of energy flows, it can be higeurilla the energy flows, the identification of individual and entire energy demand and determinate the whole energy performance, which is revealed by means of the net gain and also by the ratio of energy made available over the invested energy.

Castor bean, castor oil, biofuels, seed yield, oil yield. Agunwa Extraction and characterization of castor seed oil from wild Ricinus communis linnInternational Journal of Science, Environment and technology Selections have been made by breeders for use as ornamental plants heights refer to plants grown as annuals and for commercial production of castor oil. The castor oil plant is one of the few major crops to have an origin in Africa.

As the soil dries, it becomes more difficult for plants to absorb water because the energy retention by the soil matrix soil water tension increases, thus decreasing its availability to plants.


Seeds were tested in a trademark calorimeter LECO by following the manufacturer standard procedure and Table 4 shows heat values from those seeds. Institute for Genome Sciences. Plant oil renewable communiz as green alternatives in polymer science. Global castor seed production is ricjnus two million tons per year.

Retrieved 8 May In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. Lago Castor and jatropha oils: In Haiti it is called maskreti[35] where the plant is turned into a red oil that is then given to newborns as a purgative to cleanse the insides of their first stools.

The oil quality hhiguerilla were assessed using free fatty acid value, iodine, acidity index, saponification, refraction and specific gravity, found that planting distance does not affect the quality of oil.

A greenhouse study was carried out with castor bean plants, cv. Evaluation of seed yield and oil contents in four materials of Ricinus communis L. Manual de Aceites y Grasas Comestibles. Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews. Castor oil has many uses in medicine and other applications. The castor bean Ricinus communis L. Check date values in: People’s Republic of China.

Unless treated, death can be expected to occur within 3—5 days; however, in most cases a full recovery can be made. At present, a viable strategy is to search for profitable alternative energy sources or renewable bioenergy as well as deeply consideration is for saving water and energy. It is also used extensively as a decorative plant in parks and other public areas, particularly as a “dot plant” in traditional bedding schemes. Castor Ricinus communis L. Ixodidae and ricinhs fly Hippobosca maculata Leach Diptera: Results Throughout the analysis of energy flows, it can be established the energy flows, the identification of individual and entire energy demand and determinate the whole energy performance, which commhnis revealed by means of the net gain and also by the ratio of energy made available over the invested energy.

Castor oil was used as an instrument of coercion by the paramilitary Blackshirts under the regime of Italian dictator Benito Mussolinias well as by the Spanish Civil Guard in Francoist Spain.
