Elicitation of Tuberose Concrete, Deliberation of Recovery and Qualitative Examination from Agave amica L. cv Arka Prajwal: A Recent Study
The objective of the study was to ascertain the concrete and flower yields of Agave amica L. The several treatments were applied for the study, and the actual recovery rate was compared to both the control, which did not use intercropping, and to all of the treatments that used marigold as an intercrop. According to legend, the alkaloid lycorine, which causes vomiting, is present in tuberose bulbs. They are believed to have diuretic and emetic properties. This study aims to assess the flower quality harvested as a result of tuberose and marigold intercropping. Hexane was used as the solvent to extract the flowers. Treatment T1 recovered the most concrete in the first and second years (0.171% and 0.157%), followed by T2 (0.1671% and 0.145%), while T6 recovered the least concrete (0.104 percent and 0.103 percent). The T1 therapy’s shelf life (5.53 days) revealed the greatest number of days, while the T6 treatment found the smallest number of days (4.63 days). The tuberose vase life of T1 was the greatest (6.92 days), while T6 was the shortest (5.41 days). The found chemicals have biological relevance that may be used in pharmacological applications and serve as an inhibitor, solvent, defence compound, and phytocompound.
