Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted during 2017-18 at the research farm of CSIR-CIMAP Research Centre Pantnagar to evaluate the performance of different sources of planting materials and plant geometry on oil yield and suckers production of Menthol-mint (Mentha arvensis L.) under tarai region of Uttarakhand. The studies involved three source of planting materials (P1-Whole shoot; P2-Upper portion of shoot and P3-Lower portion of shoot) and three plant geometry (S1-50×15 cm; S1-50×30 cm and S1-50×Running) were applied. The study revealed that, planted as whole shoots resulted in higher suckers yields (89.78 q/ha) as evident from higher oil yield (102.76 kg/ha). Among the planting distance, broader spacing showed higher yield of oil (95.31 kg/ha) and suckers (83.52 q/ha) in menthol-mint during experimentation.
