    Background: This investigation aims to determine the variation in essential oil compositions in plant parts (whole plant, leaves, spikes and husk) of Perilla (Perilla frutescens L.) at 3 different sowing times and also to ensure the suitability of this crop in Doon valley climatic conditions for commercial cultivation. Methods: During the course of study, seeds were sown at 25 days intervals in the month of May, June and July with 60  30 cm spacing. The essential oils from all the samples were hydro-distilled using a Clevenger-type apparatus and analyzed by GC/MS. Results and discussion: In all the oils, perilla ketone (43.49e90.28%) and 1-methyl-2- methylene trans-decalin (4.49e36.11%) were found to be the most abundant compounds. Conclusion: On the basis of comparative composition, D1 stage (seeds sown on 20th May) showed better results as compared with D2 (seeds sown on 15th June) and D3 (seeds sown on 10th July).
