Abstract: The main purpose of this report is to determine the most efficient way of growing Chamomile, with the main intention of increasing the total flower yield and concentration of compounds such as terpenoids (a-bisabolol) and oxides (chamuzelene) for the use of pharmaceutical companies, or addition of the extracts in various other products. Through the experiment the reaction of chamomile plants collected near Thessaloniki, Greece, on two different substrates was tested (agro Lava and oikiaLava) without providing the plants any kind of fertilization whatsoever.
