Factors such as cultivars, cropping techniques, as is the case of planting density, are determinants to ensure good yield in the production of vegetables, especially coriander. As a result, the objective of this work was to develop more effi cient techniques for the cultivation of coriander, evaluating cultivars according to different planting methods, as well as the conduction of the plants, regarding the presence and absence of thinning. The experiment was conducted at the Rafael Fernandes Experimental Farm, Federal University of the Semi-Arid (UFERSA), from July to September 2016. The experimental design was a randomized complete block in a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial scheme, whose factors correspond respectively to coriander cultivars (Verdгo and Portuguкs), sowing forms (in the 0.05 m hole and line) and plant management (with and without thinning). The evaluated characteristics were: plant height, root length, number of stems per plant, yield of green mass and dry mass of shoot. The cultivar Verdгo was the most effi cient in this cultivation system. Cultivation without thinning and sowing with in-line spacing promoted the highest green mass yield, with mean values of 4.11 and 4.19 t ha-1, respectively.
