Essential oil content and composition of German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla L.) at different irrigation regimes



Essential oil content and composition of German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla L.) at different irrigation regimes



Journal of Agronomy 5(3): 451-455



The essential oil content and chemical composition of German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla Bodegold) were determined at different irrigation regimes (irrigation at 100, 85, 70 and 55% of field capacity). Essential oil was obtained by hydrodistillation of dried flower and was analysed by GC-MS. The results indicated that the yield of dry flower and essential oil per pot, essential oil percentage and its composition vary with irrigation regimes.
