A special exam of chemical elements and marketplace tendencies, the publication explores the beauty, medicinal, and dietary makes use of of the plant. It covers the botany, taxonomy, chemistry, and biogenesis of the oils, and their extraction and analytical tools, biotechnology, garage, laws, and exchange. Highlighting commercial makes use of for the grasses during this genus, the booklet additionally comprises insurance of the physiological and ecophysiological issues. It offers a accomplished review of lots of the cultivated and wild species of cymbopogons.

Featuring contributions from a crew of overseas specialists, the publication describes the huge ethno-botanical, phytochemical, and pharmacological wisdom linked to the multidimensional makes use of of the oils. It presents a whole commercial profile that incorporates marketplace dimension, geographical resources, export and import info, and makes use of. Its pages provide a useful source for examine, cultivation, advertising, or product improvement of Cymbopogon.

Changes in the utilization pattern of primary substrate, viz. [U-C-14] acetate, (CO2)-C-14 and [U-C-14] saccharose, and the contents of C-14 fixation products in photosynthetic metabolites (sugars, amino acids, and organic acids) were determined in Fe-deficient Java citronella in relation to the essential oil accumulation. An overall decrease in photosynthetic efficiency of the Fe-deficient plants as evidenced by lower levels of incorporation into the sugar fraction and essential oil after (CO2)-C-14 had been supplied was observed.

1994). In vitro plants of C. citratus were established, starting from shoot apices derived from plants cultivated under field conditions. The effect of the immersion frequency (two, four, and six immersions per day) on the production of biomass in temporary immersion systems (TIS) of 1 L capacity was studied. 3) was obtained when six immersions per day were used. 2 g) were obtained with a frequency of four and six immersions per day, respectively. 97 cm) were greater in the treatment with four immersions per day.

2001). In Java citronella significant positive correlations were observed between fresh matter, citronellol content, dry and fresh matter yields, and total essential oil content (Omisra and Srivastava 1994). 5, and 50 mm) and methods (ridge and furrow, and broad bed and furrow method) of irrigation acid nitrogen levels (0, 200, and 400 kg N ha−1 yr−1) were studied on herb and oil yields of Java citronella, highest herb and oil yields were achieved with the application of 400 kg N, maintaining 25 mm depth of irrigation, while the content and quality of oil were not affected either by irrigation or nitrogen (Singh et al.
