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 [<i style="">Cymbopogon flexuosus</i> (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 <i style="">in vivo</i> 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.
