Abstract


The paper presents a part of the research results regarding the influence of some technological factors on the evolution of mint culture in the specific conditions of Transylvania. The experiments underlying the research were located in the vicinity of Cluj-Napoca, in the Hodai-Someseni experimental field. Experimental technological factors were: the irrigation regime, the fertilization degree and the biological material, being tested three strains of mint grown in culture in Transylvania, M. x piperita var. piperita ”Swiss Mint”, M. spicata L. var. crispa ”Morroccan” and M. suaveolens var. ”Apple mint”. The paper presents the influence of the three factors and their graduations on two characters - the average height of the plants and the average number of leaves per plant, which influence the vegetal mass production.
