Abstract Share this page

A field experiment was carried out to investigate the effects of foliar application of gibberellic acid (GA3) and Naphthalne Acetic Acid on growth, yield and essential oil components of Ajwain during 2009-2011. The experiment was carried out in a completely randomized block design with three replications at College of Agriculture, Shivajinagar, Pune. The results revealed that foliar application of PGRS significantly enhanced the vegetative characters i.e. plant height, no. of branches and leaf area of ajwain in addition to photosynthetic pigments, total carbohydrate, essential oil percentage, essential oil yield/plant and thymol content. Ajwain essential oil composition was mainly characterized by presence of thymol, p-cymene and  terpinene.
