Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in the nursery of the College of Forestry, OUAT, Bhubaneswar to study the effect of lime and FYM applied alone and in different combinations on the yield of Mentha arvensis. The experimental site was located in the nursery area of the college of Forestry, OUAT, Bhubaneswar to study the effect of lime and FYM applied alone and in different combinations on the yield of Mentha arvensis. The experiment was designed in Factorial RBD with nine treatments and three replications. The treatments consist of liming @ 0, 0.3 and 0.5 LR with FYM @ 0, 2.5 and 5.0 ton/ha in different combinations. Results of the experiment revealed that application of lime and FYM significantly increased the plant height; root, leaf and stem weights; leaf, herbage and oil yields. Maximum leaf, herbage and oil yields of 110 q/ha, 318 q/ha and 44 kg/ha, respectively (after 120 days of planting) were obtained with application of lime @0.3LR along with FYM @5 ton/ha. These yields were 157, 122 and 487% higher, respectively, than these in control (0lime +0 FYM). Maximum leaf, herbage and oil yield after180 days of planting were the highest (84q/ha, 330q/ha and 30 kg/ha, respectively) when lime was applied @ 0.5 LR along with FYM @ 5.0 ton/ha. These yields were 123, 120 and 400% higher, respectively, than those in the control. Application of lime had no effect in increasing the oil content, whereas FYM had a significant effect in increasing the oil content in M. arvensis.
