Cumin (Cumminum Cyminum L.) is one of the oldest known medicinal plants in the world. Due to its adaptability to environmental conditions and short growing seasons, its cultivation is economically viable and promotes employment.

Approximately 5000 years before Christ, Egyptians used this aromatic plant for mummifying bodies. Ancient papyrus texts also reference cumin seed as a remedy for convulsions, constipation, and pain relief.

The ancient Greeks considered cumin seed a symbol of greed and utilized it in traditional medicine to treat various ailments.

Due to its wide range of applications in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and perfumery industries, cumin seed is a valuable export commodity. It is prominently featured in the medicinal plant markets, with significant import statistics from Iran to other countries.

Cumin seed is widely used in the production of various spices, especially curry powder, and is essential for flavoring a variety of Asian dishes, pickles, traditional breads, and curry sauces.

Botanical description

Cumin seed is an annual herb from the Apiaceae family, growing to a height of 15 to 30 cm. The plant features thread-like segments, with or without trifid segments.

The main root is 2 to 4 mm thick. The stem is branched, typically in pairs, rarely in triplets.

Leaves are arranged in groups of five to six, with thread-like trifid segments, lacking incisions. Umbel rays are grouped in threes to sixes, 5 to 10 mm long. Bracts are linear-long with white edges. The leaves are transparent, hairless, thread-like, and lack stipules. The inflorescence is a compound umbel, with bracts and bracteoles present at the base of the peduncles and umbellets, indicating an indeterminate inflorescence and growth pattern.

Flowers are regular, occasionally irregular, and predominantly pentamerous and bisexual or unisexual

The plant is rarely dioecious. Stamens alternate with petals and are positioned on nectariferous discs.

There are five stamens, and the ovary is bicarpellate, producing a schizocarp fruit that splits into two adherent seeds.

The seeds (fruits) are 5 to 6 mm long with the largest diameter of 1.2 to 2 mm, rectangular, covered with rough, hair-like spines.

Seed color varies depending on the plant variety, ranging from yellow to brown and green. Seed color darkens with age. The surface of the seeds features deep grooves, with each seed having six grooves. The walls of these grooves form two parallel rows extending from the tip of the seed to its base. The pericarp is thin and thickens at the groove walls.

Ecology of Cumin Seed Cultivation

– This plant thrives in tropical climates and does not reach seed production in cold regions.

– The optimal temperature for its growth is 20°C. If the temperature remains moderate during the growing period, the yield will increase.

– Cumin seed grows well in sandy loam soils with good drainage and high organic matter (calcareous soils).

– The suitable soil pH for cumin seeds cultivation ranges from 4.5 to 8.3.

– The germination rate of cumin seeds peaks at 5°C, and the seedlings’ growth rate maximized at 20°C.

– Cumin seeds are sensitive to environmental changes, and their yield decreases every three to four years.

– Adequate sunlight is essential throughout its growth period. Plants grown in well-lit areas produce higher levels of essential oils and active compounds.

– Avoid rotating cumin seeds with plants from the parsley family, as they share similar fungal diseases. Cumin seed is highly susceptible to fungal infections.

– Do not plant cumin seed in fields where it was grown the previous year.

– When plants reach 5 cm in height, weed them to prevent the spread of pests and diseases. Weeding should be done two to three times during the growth period.

– The plant requires less moisture during the flowering and fruit-setting stages.

– Approximately 500 to 1800 kg per hectare of seeds can be harvested, depending on cultivation methods, region, fertilization, and care.

Cumin seeds cultivation

Cumin seeds are sown in autumn through direct seeding after leveling the ground and preparing the soil. It can be cultivated under both irrigated and rain-fed conditions.

Irrigated cultivation of Cumin Seeds

Irrigated cultivation can be conducted using two methods: plot and furrow. For plot cultivation, the following steps are followed:

– Prepare the seedbed in early autumn by adding animal manure and plowing the field to remove heavy clods and stones. The seedbed should be soft and free of clods and hard stones to ensure better germination. Once the seedbed is ready, proceed with sowing the seeds.

In this method, light discs or cultivators are used to incorporate seeds and fertilizers into the soil.

For furrow cultivation, after preparing the field, fertilizers and seeds are distributed using a centrifugal spreader. Then, a light disc is used to cover the seeds and fertilizer with soil, and furrows 40 to 50 cm wide are created with a furrower.

Applying 15 to 20 tons of animal manure per hectare significantly enhances the yield and quality of the crop. In less fertile soils, chemical fertilizers such as phosphorus or potassium can be used. In irrigated cultivation, 15 to 50 kg per hectare of urea fertilizer is added during plant establishment and watering in March, enriching the soil.

Rain-fed cultivation

Rain-fed cultivation relies on rainfall for the water needed for crop growth. The yield of rain-fed crops directly depends on annual rainfall patterns, with production varying according to the amount of rainfall.

This type of agriculture reduces dependency on water resources, conserves water, and minimizes environmental impact.

Rain-fed crops typically contain higher active ingredients than irrigated ones due to the natural absorption of minerals from soil and rainwater. Considering climatic changes, drought-resistant plants are increasingly cultivated. Hence, cumin seed is a prime example due to its resistance to dry, cold climates and limited water supply. Accordingly, this plant holds a special place in rain-fed cultivation patterns.

Steps for rain-fed Cumin Seed cultivation

– First, use specialized machinery and equipment for rain-fed cultivation to prepare the soil.

– Perform shallow plowing of the land, followed by disking; then, sow seeds by broadcasting or with a row planter. Row planters distribute seeds evenly in specified rows and depths, ensuring equal seed distribution. Subsequently, use a leveler to smooth the land. (A leveler consists of a network of wooden or metal parts used to level the soil surface, with adjustable blades relative to the soil).

– In sloped fields, plowing should be perpendicular to the slope. During the fallow period, focus on moisture retention and weed control to prepare the land for the next planting season.

(The following involves leaving the land uncultivated for a specific period to restore soil health. This practice improves soil structure, controls weeds, conserves soil nutrients, enhances crop yield and quality, and reduces the need for chemical fertilizers).

During the fallow year, after spring rains, it is essential to control weeds and break soil crusts using appropriate machinery. This practice helps retain soil moisture and reduce weed growth.

Before sowing cumin seeds, soak them in domestic water for 24 to 36 hours to enhance their germination capacity.

Additionally, disinfect the seeds with fungicides such as Mancozeb, Vitavax, or Carboxin at a concentration of 1.5 per thousand.

– Row planter method: Use 8 to 10 kg of seeds per hectare.

– Manual broadcasting method: Use 10 to 15 kg of seeds per hectare.


Cumin seeds are drought-resistant, but over-irrigation can decrease both the yield and quality of the crop and lead to diseases.

Ensure the soil is not dry during germination. If there is no rainfall during plant establishment and the onset of flowering, irrigation is necessary.

Note that irrigation should be avoided during the flowering and fruit-setting stages to prevent reduced yield and quality.


The amount of fertilizer depends on soil fertility, annual rainfall, type of cultivation (rain-fed or irrigated), and soil texture. Less fertilizer is required in rain-fed cultivation. Fields previously planted with barley, wheat, vegetables, or legumes do not need additional fertilization as the soil already contains sufficient nutrients for the cumin seeds crop.

Harvesting rain-fed cumin seed

The manual harvesting begins in early May and continues until late June. Harvested plants are dried in the sun, and then threshed to separate seeds from the plants. Sorting is done using laser machines or sieves.

Note: Rain-fed cumin seeds are harvested about a week earlier than irrigated cumin seeds. Furthermore, avoid over-drying cumin seeds in the sun.
