Abstract

The thyme production obtained is constant from the second to the fifth crop year. In the first year of vegetation, the root reaches 20 cm, it is pivotal and lignified and continues to branch off in the following years. Starting with the third year of vegetation, more stems start to grow from the collet, giving the plant a bush aspect. The stem is 20-50 cm high, thick, erect and the inferior part has a grey suber on it. The shoots have hairs headed downwards and start from the axil of the leaves. The leaves are small, 6-10 mm length, 2-4 mm wide, placed opposite, ovate lance late, hairy on reverse face. The studies conducted on organic thyme allow recommending improved methods and techniques for increasing its culture density to 75 thousand plants/ha, which ensures a significant production growth
