Abstract:

Menthol mint (Mentha arvensis L.) is a commercially cultivated crop and essential oil-bearing plant that belongs to family Lamiaceae, and it is used in aromatherapy, flavor, and pharmaceutical industries. The aims of the present study to optimize planting methods, age of seedlings, and date of harvesting. The experiment was carried out at the research farm of CSIR-Central Institute of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants, Lucknow during the year 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.The analysis was consisting of three planting methods, five age of seedlings, and four dates of harvesting. Results were revealed that ridge planting recorded maximum sucker yield (27.50Mg ha-1), essential oil yield (52.97 kg ha-1) with minimum water requirement, and maximum water use efficiency (48.22 ha cm and 0.43 kg ha mm-1) along with net returns ($ 3590.34 ha-1). The 30 days old seedlings produced the highest suckers and essential oil yield (27.43Mg ha-1 and 56.62 kg ha-1) along with the maximum net profits ($ 3598.44 ha-1). Maximum suckers and essential oil yield (25.10Mg ha-1 and 50.85 kgha mm-1) with higher net return ($ 3206.22 ha-1) were reported when harvesting (digging) of suckers on 31 January. Planting on ridges of 30 days old seedlings along with harvesting on 31 January was a suitable combination to obtain maximum suckers and essential oil yield with higher income.
