Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at the department of plantation, spices, medicinal and aromatic crops, College of Horticulture, UHS campus GKVK post, Bangalore, during November 2016 to April 2017. Twelve fennel (<em>Foeniculumvulgare</em>Mill.) varieties were evaluated for quality attributes. Maximum oil content (1.94 %) was noticed in RF 281 followed by GF 12 (1.93 %), but maximum oil yield (kg/ ha) was obtained from GF 12 (52.02 kg). Anethole content ranged from 22.87 per cent (RF 125) to 69.75 per cent (GF 2). From this study we can conclude that, RF 281, GF 12 and GF 2 varieties may be exploited in breeding programmes for quality attributes to be incorporated.
