Cultural problems with seed fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) in Italy and possibilities for cultural diffusion



Cultural problems with seed fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) in Italy and possibilities for cultural diffusion



Atti convegno internazionale: Coltivazione e miglioramento di piante officinali, Trento, Italy, 2-3 giugno 1994: 165-188



Results from research undertaken since 1988 to underpin Italian fennel seed production are reported. Considerable variation in plant size, the vegetative cycle and yields were observed due to varietal differences and environmental variability. Late autumn sowing in northern and central Italy can lead to crop failure due to frost. Lower sowing rates and narrower row spacings have proved advantageous. As regards essential oil production, biomass should be distilled at the wax ripe stage.
