This work aimed to evaluate the production of fresh and dry mass of leaves, stems and aerial parts, and the contentand quality of lemon mint (Mentha x piperita var. citrata) essential oil as a result of four potassium (K)concentrations (276, 414, 552 and 690 mg.L-1) under hydroponic solutions. The experiment was carried out in thehydroponic NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) system. Leaves were separated and weighted to determine the freshmass and part of them was used to extract oil in a Clevenger… CONTINUE READING
