Aim: The experiment was intended to find out the effect of Integrated Nutrient Management on Essential oil (Volatile oil) of Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.).
Methodology: The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with 8 treatments using chemical fertilizers (NPK), vermicompost and biofertilizers (Azotobacter and Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria sp. Pseudomonas strata) in different combinations including one control treatment.
Results: The results indicated that volatile oil percentage and percentage of different compounds i.e. Linalool, Geraniol, a-pinene and B - pinene in volatile oil of Coriandrum sativum L. was recorded significantly higher in T7 treatment compared to control treatment at different growth stages.
Conclusion: From the analysis of results it can be concluded that integrated use of biofertilizers, chemical fertilizers and vermicompost is the best combination for the Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) crop.
