Özet

This research was conducted to determine the effect of nitrogen fertilization on the yield, yield components and nutrient concentrations of lavandin (Lavandulaxintermedia Emeric ex Loisel. var. Super A). Experiment was designed as randomized block design with three replications. Nitrogen fertilization increased yields and some quality parameters such as plant height, branch height, length of flower, essential oil content and affected essential oil components (such as: linalool, linalyl acetate and camphor). Nitrogen fertilization also led to increase nutrient concentrations, generally. Results obtained from two years of the study showed that the most effective level of N on lavandin yielding and plant nutrient concentrations appeared to be 100 kg n ha(-1).
