Hello: I am posting this for a student at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College.
Hi! For my B.Sc. (Agric)- horticulture undergraduate project I am examining
different seed treatments of lamb's quarters (Chenopodium album L.) in order to
obtain information for a better method to increase harvestable yield of
herbage. Yes herbage!
I am examining this plant as it is a suitable potherb and there is a market
for it (and it tastes good too!).
I am looking for information about:
- edible uses, culture, other uses (ie. cover crop, forage)
Please respond by email to email@example.com
I will also monitor responses to the group. If you are interested I will
compile the responses and post them to the group.
