CIM-Ayu is a cultivar of O. sanctum [O. tenuiflorum] obtained by mass selection and recurrent selection from germplasm accessions from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Uttaranchal, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Jammu and Kashmir, and West Bengal, India. In selection trials conducted during 2000/2001, 2001/2002 and 2002/2003, CIM-Ayu exhibited superiority for herb yield, dry matter yield and essential oil quality over the other selections, including STA-1 (control).
