Cite article:- Singh R.P., Yadav P.K., Singh S.N., Chandel S.K.S., Singh R.K. (2024). EFFECT OF FOLIAR APPLICATION OF Zn ON HERBAGE AND OIL YIELD OF PALMAROSA (CYMBOPOGON MARTINII). Agricultural Science Digest. 30(3): 215 - 217. doi: .
The effect of Zn on herbage and oil yield of palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii) was studied in
a field experiment. The experiment was laid out under randomized block design (RBD) with six
treatments (viz., 0.0, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7 and 0.8 % Zn and four replications. The foliar application of
zinc significantly increased the plant height as compared to control. Similarly, the number of tillers
was also significantly increased over control. Maximum herbage yield was associated with 0.7% Zn
(735.45 q ha-1) followed by 0.8% Zn (714.91 q ha-1), 0.6% Zn (665.12 q ha-1), 0.5% Zn (625.16 q ha-
1) and 0.4% Zn (533.12 q ha-1), respectively. The maximum oil content (0.7 %) was registered with
control while, the maximum oil yield (441.24 kg ha-1) was obtained with foliar application of 0.7 %
