Influence of different shade levels on photosynthetically active radiation,
stomatal conductance and chlorophyll content in mint (Mentha spp.) types

Fifteen accessions of Japanese mint (Mentha arvensis L.), pepper mint (Mentha piperita L.) and spear mint (Mentha spicata L.)
were evaluated under different shade conditions (Open, 25 and 50 per cent shade). Japanese mint recorded higher
Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) and pepper mint recorded increased Stomatal Conductance (Cs) under 25 per
cent shade condition (162.57 μ mol m-2 s-1 and 2.57 μ mol m-2 s-1respectively).

Keywords: chlorophyll content, different shades, photosynthetically active radiation, stomatal conductance
