Abstract

Rutin [rutoside] is an important pharmaceutical product used in the treatment of capillary fragility, retinitis and rheumatic-fever-associated haemorrhagic conditions. The results of cultivation trials in Himachal Pradesh involving Sophora japonica, Fagopyrum esculentum, Eucalyptus macrorhyncha and E. youmanii indicated that the 2 latter species had the most promising potential for rutin production.
