Abstract
A field experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of gamma radiation doses (0, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 k-rad) on essential oil composition of Anethum graveolens L. plants. The treatment of dill seeds presowing to gamma radiation doses led to differences in percentages of essential oil composition. The obtained data revealed that, p-cymene, carvone and dillapiole were the most abundant in the flowers; the main compounds of essential oil in the leaves+stems were dillether and p-cymene. However, four main compounds were identified in the whole flowering herb such as p-cymene, carvone, dillether and dillapiole.
