  The need to reduce harmful effects from the indiscriminate use of herbicide has facilitated the development of weed management systems, which are based on ecological manipulations rather than agrochemicals. In this direction, utilizing allelopathic plants to suppress the weed may be the most cost-effective and environment-friendly method of weed control. In coriander, one of the popular seed spices, weed control is challenging as the crop is having a low degree of competitiveness against weeds particularly at the initial phases of its growth. Towards searching the allelopathic potential of some plants in managing the weeds of coriander, a few common Allium species like onion, garlic and leek are found effective as has been reported alongwith other crops in various parts of the world particularly due to their effects most often linked to volatile substances derived from sulphur amino acids. Reports are available on the allelopathic potential of wild onion (Asphodelus tenuifolius) on the germination and seedling growth of chickpea (Cicer arietinum). Welsh onion (Allium fistulosum) are found to exhibit distinct allelopathic effect on summer chrysanthemum by inhibiting rooting and early growth of the plants followed by wilting. Allium ursinum L. (wild garlic) is also found allelopathic for its phenolic acids and total phenolics content in the leaves, bulbs and soil. The present study is an attempt to search such potential allelopathic alliaceae crops which are very common, useful and substantiate the economy of the growers whenever grown alongwith the coriander crop.

  Black pepper (Piper nigrum), known as “King of spices”, is a perennial export oriented cash crop in India. With organic spice being the latest demand by the health conscious people throughout the globe, organic substitution of nitrogenous fertilizers in black pepper is becoming relevant day by day. An investigation was carried out to study the influence of different organic substitution of nitrogenous fertilizers in nutrient schedule on different growth parameters of the black pepper cultivar Panniyur-1. Recommended dose of P and K in the form of SSP and MoP was given to the vines. The plants were allowed to grow for upto 36 months of age for taking observations on different growth parameters. Considering the realization of highest response for four important growth parameters viz., plant height (269.37 cm), plant fresh weight (533.80 g), plant dry weight (178.01 g) and relative growth rate, RGR (5.10 g g-1 day-1) after 36 months of planting, it may be concluded that the organic matter supplementation by 25% farm yard manure along with 75% urea) may be the best nutrient schedule under this agro-climatic condition.

  In order to study the effects of sowing dates on phenology and yield of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.), an experiment was conducted during 2010-2012 based on a randomized complete block design with three replications in HRS, Mondouri, BCKV, India. Six sowing dates included 5th November (D1), 12th November (D2), 19th November (D3), 26th November (D4), 3rd December (D5) and 10th December (D6). The results showed that a delay in sowing from November 5 to December 10 decreased plant height, number of primary branches per plant, days to 50% germination, days to flower initiation, days to 50% flowering and days to fruit maturity significantly. The 5th November exhibited significant improvement in yield attributes namely numbers of umbels per plant (25.58), umbellets per umbel (6.85), seeds per umbel (30.55), test weight (12.61 g), seed weight per plant (6.85 g) and seed yield ha-1 (1098.33 kg ha-1).

  Coriander is one of the few plants which can be termed both as a herb and a spice, the seeds being used as spices and leaves are widely used as herbs. The experiment has been carried out to popularize coriander cultivation in West Bengal commercially to optimize the sowing time and cutting management for production of coriander leaf and seed in protected situation. Observations on phonological [e.g., time taken for germination (DAS), time taken for emergence of 1st leaf 2nd leaf and 3rd leaf (DAS), time taken for initiation of serrated leaf (DAS), time taken for flowering (DAS), time taken for seed setting (DAS), time taken for physiological maturity (DAS)] yield components [e.g., yield of green leaves/plot (g/3 m2) yield of seeds/plot (g/3 m2) were recorded. The results revealed protected cultivation in the summer days was a possible alternative for farmers to control external climatic factors which may affect germination of coriander seeds and leaf yield. June sown seeds recorded the highest leaf number and were found to produce the highest leaf yield and seed yield. Highest leaf yield was found in two cutting and highest seed yield was observed in one cutting.
