Quality in Coriander leaves as influenced by growing conditions
Keywords:Coriander leaves, uses,, vitamin C,, volatile oil,, chlorophyll
A study was conducted in the plains of Kerala to investigate the performance of coriander leaf
for its quality aspects in open and rain shelter conditions. The study suggested that significantly
higher herbage and biomass yield (g/ plant) was observed from plants grown in rain shelter
(9.21 and 12.78) compared to the open field (8.41 and 11.34). Among the varieties, Arka Isha
recorded the highest herbage and biomass yield (10.46 and 14.13g/plant) followed by CO-1
(8.97and 12.70).There was a significant higher vitamin C content (mg/100g) in open field
(189.72) compared to rain shelter ( 124.55) and volatile oil ranging from 0.05-0.06 % in both
the growing conditions and were on par. Total chlorophyll content was recorded more in open
field (1.98) than in rain shelter (1.92) Among the varieties, total chlorophyll was more in CO-
4(2.33). However, this need to be confirmed by further studies.
