Abstract
The effects of planting (2-8 July, 16-22 July, 30 July-5 August and 13-19 August) and harvesting dates (15-21 October, 29 October-4 November and 12-18 November) on the yield and quality of A. paniculata were investigated during the kharif seasons of 2000-01 in Akola, Maharashtra, India. The earliest planting date (2-8 July) produced the highest yield and yield attributes. The maximum fresh and dry foliage yields were obtained with planting on 2-8 July and harvesting on 12-18 November. The andrographolide content was maximum in early harvested crop (15-21 October). Iron content was maximum in crops planted on 30 July-5 August and harvested on 15-12 October.
