We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be bubium in Britain, though judging by its native range it should succeed outdoors in many parts of this country.

It is likely to prefer a well-drained light to medium soil in sun or light shade. Plants For A Future have a number of books available in paperback and digital form. Our new buunium to be bynium soon is Edible Shrubs. Seed – sow spring in a cold frame. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter, planting them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, persicuj the last expected frosts.

Survey on the treatment of the seed amount, the transplanting time of Black zira Bunium persicum bulbs from persocum to field with the best cultivation pattern. Mahdi Faravani Iran email: The present study was conducted at Bhnium Agricultural Research Center in order to determine the amount of seeds in nursery and the best transplanting date for black zira Bunium persicum bulbs from nursery to field and also to find out the best cultivation pattern in the field.


Inbuniuum experiment was laid out in factorial under a randomized complete block design. The factor of the cultivation patterns were included of three levels as squarelozenge and rectangle. The transplanting date of two years old black zira bulbs from nursery to field was conducted in three seasons summer, fall and winter in the form of RCBD. The distance between rows was considered in both the rectangular pattern and lozenge 25 cm and in the square pattern The results showed that the best transplanting date of the black zira bulbs was summer due to bulb dormancy and considering optimum yield and biological yield.

Black zira, nursery, bulb, transplantingpattern. The effect of different plant density and plant rates on yield on Saffron Crocus sativus and Black Zira Bunium persicum in intercropping system. The effect of different plant densities and rates on saffron Crocus sativus and black zira Bunium persicum intercropping was studied in at Toragh Agricultural Research Station in Mashhad.

The experimental design was an randomized complete blocks in factorial arrangement with 4 replications and 15 treatment including 3 levels of plant populations 50, 25 and The method of bivariate analysis was the good methods of analysis and it make analyze simultaneously two bumium obtained from one plot related to a specific treatment. Decreasing density from Maximum Buinum obtained with Determining optimum plant density of Black zira Bunium persicum in nursery and field M.

BOX ,Mashad- Iran faravani hotmail. The study was conducted bunihm at the farm of Khorassan Agricultural Research Center. The experiment was laied out a Randomized Complete Block Design with replication of four to determine optimum Black perssicum Bunium persicum density in nursery and field.

Two year old bulbs were sorted into three sizes small, medium and large then they were sown at 5 bnuium densities 40,50, Collected data during two year experiment were analyzed using split-plot in time design. Both plant density significantly affected seed yield and biological yield while no significant effect was observed in case of test weight, plant height, and umbrel number per plant and number of seed per umbrellet.

Maximum seed yield Quantitative value of plant height, number of umbrella and as a result, seed yield and biological yield were increased in second year where bulb weight was more than 2 grams.

I was one of the Research Fellow RF in the same project for three years. Bunikm the project we have collected 20 different germplasm from different localities of Himachal Pradesh, India. Cultivation practices also standardised by laying out Agronomic Experiments in Reckong-Peo, Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh, India, at the altitude of m asl. Oil content of different provenances Bunium persicum was found. Two students did P. The Report of this project available with me cndn19 yahoo. Trying to find a seed source.
