Effect of Salt Stress on Some Agronomical Characteristics and Essential Oil Content of Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L. ) Cultivars
This study was carried out to investigate the effect of five different salt levels (0, 25, 50, 75, 100 mMol) on some agronomical traits and essential oil content of three coriander cultivars (Gürbüz, Kudret-K, Pel-Mus) in 3 greenhouse conditions in Adana, Turkey. In this research; plant height, number of umbrella/plant, number of seeds/umbrella, number of branches/ plant, seed weight/plant and essential oil rate were determined. The results indicated that growth and yield parameters and technological properties of coriander cultivars were affected by salt stress. Highest essential oil rate was obtained from Kudret-K cultivar with 75 mMol salt level.
