Several randomly selected glasshouse grown somaclones of rose scented geranium, Pelargonium graveolens L’Her Ex Ait. cv. Hemanti were successfully transferred to the field in Northern India for evaluation. Two distinct morphotypes were described on the basis of leaf dentation-one resembling the parental cultivar in having highly dentated leaves (HDL) and the other with less dentated leaves (LDL). After repeated field-testing for 3 consecutive years, the HDL clones closely resembled the parental ...

Abstract Rose Scented Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens L.) can be a profitable crop for the farmers of northern Indian plains. But, the commercialization of the crop is facing 100% mother plants mortality in extreme climatic conditions during the rainy season and non-economic saving under Air Conditioned glass house. Hence, four-year experiment (2013–2016) was carried out for the development of economically viable technology to save the propagules. Results revealed that geranium propagules could...

AbstractObjective: In this study, productivity and essential oil quality of rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium graveolens L’ Herit. ex Aiton.) varieties, namely CIMAP Bio-G-171, CIM-Pawan and Bourbon were assessed and compared in two locations of north India. Methods: A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the productivity, while the chemical composition of the essential oils was assessed by GC-FID and GC-MS. Result: Yields of fresh leaves and essential oil from CIMAP Bio-G-171 were signif...

In the field, the chemical constituents of the essential oil of Pelargonium graveolens cutting (diploid) and polyploid seedlings are the same, but the principal components of geraniol, geranyl formate, and linalool in polyploid plants are remarkably higher than those of cutting seedlings. The contents of citronellol, citronellyl formate, and rose oxide are significantly lower in polyploid seedlings than in cutting seedlings. ISSR and RAPD molecular markers were used to analyze P. graveolens in t...

Pelargonium is one of the seven genera belonging to the Geraniaceae family, and includes almost 280 species mainly coming from South Africa. Some of these species have a strong rose scent mostly due to geraniol and citronellol. For a long time, hybrids between P. graveolens or P. radens and P. capitatum, have been used for essential oil (EO) production. Nowadays, EOs of Pelargonium species are produced mainly in China and Egypt. Hybrids are male sterile and propagated through cuttings. Their ada...

Commercial geranium oil samples, steam-distilled oils of authenticated plant samples, and a reference sample were investigated by GC/MS to determine the validity and applicability of a series of chemical and stereochemical tests that have been proposed in the literature to identify the country of origin, phytochemical identity or authenticity of geranium oils. The chemical tests evaluated include the ratio of the concentrations of geraniol to citronellol and the presence or absence of certain se...
