Abstract Sustainable improvement in the yield of aromatic plants for essential oil production is the need of time. For this many technologies are employed today by the farmers. However use of rhizosphere fungi seems to be highly economical, user friendly and sustainable, hence this approach is considered in the present investigation. For present study lemon grass seedlings were raised in plastic pots containing soil inoculated with rhizosphere fungi. The effect of rhizosphere fungi on essential… 

Pre-inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi affects essential oil quality and the reproduction of root lesion nematode in Cymbopogon citratus.

Although both AMF treatments led to effective root colonization (> 84%), fungus inoculation was not effective in reducing P. brachyurus population density, Nevertheless, C. etunicatum promoted an increase in shoot weight, and AMF treatment contributed to preserving essential oil composition in nematode-infected plants.

Genetic diversity analysis for wild and cultivated accessions of Cymbopogon citratus (D.C.) Stapf using phytochemical and molecular markers

Background Genetic diversity is being lost because of increasing urbanization and decreasing cultivation land, which leads to the abrupt use of wild resources of medicinally aromatic plants (MAPs).
