Abstract: The yield and composition of the essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation of inflorescences from clary sage (Salvia sclarea Linn.), that transplanted at fortnightly interval was analysed using GC-MS during 2008-2009 at Institute of Himalayan Bioresource Technology, Palampur, India. Planting were done in six consequent meteorological standard weeks (MSWs) starting from February 20 to May 6, 2009 corresponding to 8th MSW to 14th MSW. Planting time coincided with distinct changes in weather parameters and consequently significant variation in the performance of the crop was observed. The essential oil content of clary sage varied from 0.033 to 0.216 % during different transplanting dates. Sixteen components were identified which represented 91.34 - 96.34 % of the oil. Delay in transplanting from March 7 decreased the oil content and yield. Linalyl acetate was identified as the most abundant component in all the samples examined, followed by linalool. In March 7 transplanted plant, oil sample were enriched with higher percentage of major constituents as linalool (28.2 %), α-terpineol (12.48 %) and Linalyl acetate (31.00 %), as compared to other samples of Salvia sclarea oil
