Özet

Coriander, Coriandrum sativum L., is a major medicinal and aromatic plant having aromatic carminative, stomachic, and antispasmodic properties. There are six improved cultivars in Turkey. In the research, it was aimed to adaptability trial of the new cultivars for Eastern Mediterranean. Therefore, field experiments were carried out during 2008- 2009 and 2009- 2010 growing seasons. Plant and agronomic properties were evaluated with oil content and composition. Oil compositions were analyzed with GCMS. As a result of the research, all investigated characters were varied significantly, except linalool which is major component in coriander fruit oil. With respect to fruit yield and essential oil content, the best results were obtained from Arslan and Erbaa cultivars, respectively. Linalool contents varied between 84.60 and 90.10 %; and maximum data of the component were obtained from Gurbuz with 90%.
