Essential oil derived from aromatic plants find wide application in perfume, flavour, fragrance and pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. There has been a significant increase in demand for essential oils and aromatic plants during the past 35 years. Although, some aromatic herbs/varieties are grown already there is a need to develop cultivation and distillation methods appropriate for newly developed elite strains/varieties of aromatic plants alongwith new end-products and novel strategies. Incorporating essential oil production into farming practices has the potential to benefit all growers of aromatic crops. Many such growers are small farmers with limited resources. Adding essential oil production to already existing operations allows growers to make a new value added commodity with the potential for increased earning and local jobs especially in depressed agricultural areas.

Dr. Shahi AK

Dr. A. K. Shahi (born 1950), M.Sc., Plant Ecology, 1972, University of Rajasthan and Ph.D. (1990), University of Jodhpur, Jodhpur (Rajasthan) India, based on Ecological Studies of some desert grasses with reference of Cymbopogon jwarancusa. He had served as Sr. Scientist in Plant Sciences Division of Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine (CSIR), Jammu and retired on 31st December, 2010. During the service period, the main achievements are briefly stated as under:

Development of hyper-productive elite strains of Cymbopogon Mentha and Ocimum species having high adaptability and better economic returns from the present existing strains of aromatic plants. Under varied environmental conditions.

Using energy indices/environmental indices, an introduction of a novel concept based on essential oil adaptability and essential oil crop modeling has been made on developed elite strains of above mentioned aromatic crops for better production of oil quality/quantity along with economic returns.

Two pharmacologically active chemicals had been identified from the Cymbopogon flexuosus chemotypes RRLJCFHSR & RRLJCFHP of Indian origin having antibacterial activity (US Patent No. 6787674) and anti-cancer activity on human leukemia HL-60 cells, respectively.

A geraniol rich strain of Cymbopogon commutatus (Steud.) Stapf had been developed as rainfed crop for better utilization of marginal/waste lands and also most suitable for problematic soils i.e. sodic alkaline soils especially under rainfed conditions for better economic returns. In this regard a US Patent entitled Cymbopogon plant named RLJCC1 No. PP15595 1st March, 2005 had been granted.

Dr. Shahi had published about 250 research papers in national/international journals, two US patents and three awards to his credit. He had also done the expansion of Cymbopogon nardus var. Confertiflorus (RRL-CN-5) in north Gujarat and Kutch covering 200 acres of land. It has been done for the poor farmers/weaker section of the society. Introduction of elite strains of Cymbopogon species have also been made in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh & Rajasthan States for the benefits of the farmers communities and better economic returns from the existing traditional crops.
