Abstract:

Field study was conducted during 2015 to investigate the influence of row spacing (30 cm, 45 cm and 60 cm) and nitrogen levels (50,100,150 and 200 kg/ha) on biochemical and quality parameters of Japanese mint (Mentha arvensis L.). The result revealed that at 90 days after planting, the row spacing of 60 cm recorded the highest total chlorophyll (3.09 mg/g of tissue) and carotenoid content (2.73 mg/g of tissue). Among the nitrogen level of 150 kg per ha recorded highest total chlorophyll (2.89 mg/g of tissue) and carotenoid content (2.71 mg/g of tissue). There was no significant effect of row spacing and nitrogen levels on menthol content. However, row spacing of 60 cm and application of 150 kg N per ha recorded maximum menthol content (64.57% and 64.58 % respectively).


Keywords: Biochemical, Nitrogen levels, Spacing, Days after planting.
