Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out to study the effect of land configuration, irrigation level and nutrient management on growth, yield and economics of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) at the Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (Maharashtra) during kharif season of the year 2014-15 and 2015-16. A set of twenty four treatment combinations of land configuration, irrigation level and nutrient management (2 x 3 x 4) were laid out in a Split plot design with three replications. The experimental results revealed that, broad bed furrow land configuration, irrigation level 40 mm CPE and application of 100% RDF+ 25 % RDN through vermicompost recorded significantly more number of tillers, plant height, number of functional leaves, leaf area and dry matter plant-1 of turmeric. The entire yield attributes and economics i.e. number of fresh mother rhizomes, weight of fresh mother rhizomes, and yield of fresh mother rhizomes, yield of fresh primary fingers, yield of fresh secondary fingers, total yield of turmeric ha-1 and yield of cured fingers ha-1, gross monetary returns, net monetary returns and benefit cost ratio ha-1 were recorded significantly superior in broad bed furrow of land configuration, irrigation level 40 mm CPE, application of 100 % RDF + 25 % RDN through vermicompost and treatment combination of 40 mm CPE with 100% RDF + 25% RDN through vermicompost.
