Know the right time to harvest Mentha

लेखक - Soumya Priyam | 9/5/2020

Mentha i.e. mint has medicinal properties in many ways. Many types of medicines are also made from its oil. It is necessary for the farmers cultivating Mentha to know the right time for its harvesting. So let's talk about some important things to pay attention to at the time of harvesting.

  • Mentha is harvested twice.

  • The first harvesting is done at the time of flowering of the plants i.e. about 100 to 120 days after sowing.

  • The month of May-June is best suited for the first harvesting.

  • Second harvesting is done 60 - 70 days after the first harvesting. Second harvesting is done in the month of August-September.

  • It is very important to harvest the plants at the right time. Premature harvesting results in low menthol content. On the other hand, if there is a delay in harvesting, the amount of oil decreases.

  • Plants should be cut at a height of about 4 to 5 cm from the ground surface.

  • After harvesting the plants, keep them in open sunlight for 2 to 3 hours.

  • After this the harvested crop should be dried lightly in the shade.

  • Now you can extract oil by means of distillation method by means of machines.
