ABSTRACT
 
Field experiment for different levels of nitrogen and sowing dates for coriander crop was performed under field conditions during year 2011-12. Sowing of Coriander was practiced on three dates with fortnight interval from 20th October to 20th November). Nitrogen fertilizer was applied at four levels of 0, 20, 40 and 60 kg ha-1. Maximum days to germination, plant height, number of days to first umbel maturity and seed yield kg ha-1 were observed in plants provided with at 60 kg ha-1 nitrogen at 5th November sown crop, hence recommended for better production of coriander under the agro climatic conditions of Swat.
Keywords: Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.), Nitrogen levels and sowing dates.
