Galium verum L. populations originated from Central Europe (Hungary) and from the Caucasus (Georgia) were introduced to the Botanical Garden of the Institute of Ecology and Botany of the Hungarian Academy or Sciences, to Vácrátót. Both populations were analyzed for phytomass, iridoid percentage and iridoid production. They do not differ considerably in iridoid composition; asperuloside is the main component in both. The minor components do not show differences evaluable from chemotaxonomic point of view. As regards the phytomass and the iridoid content, Hungarian population turned to be more favourable than the Georgian one, giving higher yield in both respect. On this basis they may consider as a higher production Central European and a lower production Caucasian ecotype.
