b) New Plant varieties developed
KALAM: A New citral rich ( 78-83 %) variety for drought prone areas. Released by His Excellency Bharat Ratna Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam on 26th June, 2003. The variety is suitable for cultivation both under rainfed and irrigated conditions.
Tawi Rosa: A new geraniol rich variety of Cymbopogon released on 26th September, 2003. The main feature of this strain is that it can withstand moisture stress level of 15% and contains total alcohol in the range of 80-85%, calculated as geraniol 70-75% and geranyl acetate 10-15%. Apart from the main chemical constituents, it contains 3-5% ocimene which is used in high grade perfumery.
Jamrosa: C. khasianus and C. nardus var. confertiflorus x C. jawarancusa, both the varieties can be successfully cultivated in sub-tropical and tropical regions of India. The varieties yield up to 0.4% oil with 60-65% geraniol and 20-25% geranyl acetate.
Ocimums: Developed three varieties rich in eugenol, linalool and methyl cinnamate.
Mentha Longifolia- menthe longifolia cultivar developed, has about 0.5% oil containing about 65% carvone. This variety has been transferred to South India Mints and Aromatic Products, Trivulveli (T.N) where it is growing over an area of about 200 acres.
Hops- form an essential raw material for the manufacture of beer
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)- WSR : An improved strain WSR is developed and released for commercial cultivation by IIIM, Jammu. The dry biomass yield of this newly developed variety shows 200 % increase in yield over the conventionally grown varieties
Dioscorea composite (S2-58): The strain developed by IIIM, Jammu grows vigorously and contain 3.6 % diosgenin.
Celery (RRL-85-1): IIIM has developed this variety of Apium graveolens. The herb essential oil contains phellandrene as principal constitutant and up to 30% Carvone, and is used as a flavouring agent.
