Abstract
Chamomile [Chamomilla recutita] plants cv. Bona were sampled 7 times between the rosette and maturity stages of development and the air-dried material was analysed. The most intensive dry matter production, on a daily basis, and the most intensive nutrient uptake occurred during the same period, namely, from stem to flower bud formation. Chamomile under suitable soil and weather conditions produces a large biomass and takes up about twice the amount of nutrients as a wheat crop.
