The single plant production of leaves and seeds of three genotypes (GR, AUS and IRN) of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) was studied in relation to three sowing dates (i.e. transplanting on 11-11-2004, 9-3-2005 and 7-4-2005, 1st, 2nd and 3rd sowing dates, respectively). The highest leaf yield of 94.58 and 11.33 g plant-1 for fresh and dry weight, respectively, was obtained in the AUS genotype from the 1st sowing. In crops from the 2nd and 3rd sowings, leaf yield of GR and IRN genotypes was not recorded due to rapid bolting and stem elongation. In all three sowings, GR flowered first and AUS flowered last. The highest seed yields were obtained in the AUS variety from the 1st sowing (i.e. 106.83 g plant-1), whereas in the 2nd and 3rd sowing, GR had the highest yield and largest 1000 seed weight (42.03, 35.59 g and 20.35, 19.65 g plant-1 respectively).
