Abstract: The aim of this study was to ascertain whether nitrate reductase (NR) and alkaline phosphatase activity (ALP) can be used as biochemical marker to screen lemon grass [Cymbopogon flexuosus (Steud) Wats] genotypes for higher herbage yield. In the study, 11 strains of essential oil bearing cash crop lemongrass were used. The results revealed that in vivo NR activity has significant positive correlation with herbage yield; however, no significant correlation was found for ALP. Thus, NR activity can be used as biochemical marker for screening lemon grass genotypes for growth and herbage yield.
