Abstract
Kopar (Anethum graveolens) iz porodice Apiaceae jednogodišnja je aromatična biljna vrsta, koja se danas uzgaja ili slobodno raste na svim kontinentima osim Antarktike. Jedina je biljna vrsta iz roda Anethum, a varijetet koji se uzgaja u Indiji te na Dalekom Istoku nosi komercijalni naziv sowa. Uzgaja se zbog listova koji se koriste kao svježi ili suhi začin u domaćinstvu, ali i zbog herbe i ploda koji služe za destilaciju eteričnog ulja, primjenjivog u prehrambenoj, farmaceutskoj i kemijskoj industriji. Glavni kemijski sastojci kopra su karvon, limonen i α-felandren, a uz to sowa sadrži apiol i miristicin. Tehnologija uzgoja djelomično se razlikuje ovisno o namjeni usjeva. Određena područja u medicini i kemijskoj industriji još uvijek istražuju i ispituju mogućnosti primjene kopra, odnosno njegovog eteričnog ulja i/ili drugih pripravka.

Dill (Anethum graveolens), a member of the Apiaceae family is an annual aromatic plant and it is cultivated widely throughout the world except Antarctica. It is the sole species of the genus Anethum. A variety called East Indian dill or Sowa is cultivated in India and Far East. Dill leaves are used as a fresh or dry spice in a household, and dill oil is extracted from fruit and herb, which contains an essential oil used in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industry. It contains the main compounds: carvone, limonene and α-phellandrene, while Sowa also contains apiol and myristicin. The technology of dill growing varies depending on the purpose of the crop. Possibilities for application of dill herb and its essential oil and/or other dill preparations are still under investigation and examination in the certain areas of medicine and chemical industry.
