Abstract: An experiment was conducted in rainfed sub-temperate hills of Uttarakhand with a Clarysage (Salvia sclarea Linn.) genotype EC314327, introduced from Germany, by applying three organic manures, viz. Farmyard manure (FYM), leaf manure (LM) and ash (20 t/ha each) and an NPK dose of 150:80:100 kg/ha along with control. Results indicated that maximum spike yield (104.67g/ plant) and 6.61kg/plot were obtained with application of NPK followed by FYM (81.33g and 5.96kg, respectively). Harvesting of inflorescence at complete petal-fall stage (during late July) was the best time in relation to essential oil percentage.
