RESEARCH REGARDING THE INFLUENCE OF ROW SOWING DISTANCE ON YIELD AND YIELD QUALITY IN PERILLA OCYMOIDES L PUBLISHEDV. NEŞCU, Gh. DAVID
Abstract. The study was carried out using as a biological material five types of perilla from Romania, Italy, Turkey and Serbia. The experiments were carried out on a vertic preluvosoil deeply stagno-gleyed in the hill area of Western Romania. The paper refers to fruit yield, oil content and oil yield depending on row sowing distance. Fruit yield depending on row sowing distance increased, on the average, in the five biotypes, with 23% (from 25 to 50 cm) and with 24% (from 25 to 75 cm). Oil content depending on biotype and row sowing distance ranged between 46.9% and 48.8%, and oil yield ranged between 402 kg/ha and 698 kg/ha.
Key words: Perilla ocymoides, distance, phenotype
