Abstract:

The present experiment in turmeric was carried out in Randomized Block Design with three replications during Kharif 2017 at Horticulture Research Station, Dr. Y.S.R.H.U, Chinthapalli, Visakhapatnam District. Total nineteen genotypes were evaluated including one national and one local check. Among the genotypes studied, CLA-1 recorded the highest plant height (169.2 cm), leaf length (70.53 cm), CLA-5 recorded the highest number of tillers per plant (3.33), var. Roma recorded the highest leaf width (17.68 cm), var. BSR-2 recorded the highest number of leaves per plant (18.33) and highest leaf area (13454.61 cm2). The maximum yield per plot was observed in CLA-3 (15.10 kg), whereas the minimum was recorded in CLA-10 (8.04 kg). The maximum estimated fresh rhizome yield per hectare was recorded in CLA-3 (50.35 t) and the lowest estimated fresh rhizome yield was recorded in the genotype CLA-10 (26.80 t) when compared to other genotypes under HAT zone conditions.
