Field experiments were an attempt to assess the efficacy of vermicompost, biofertilizers along with inorganic nutrients in turmeric cv. Roma. In a randomized block design, ten treatments with variable recommended dose of fertilizer (60:30:90 kg N, P2O5, K2O ha-1) along with vermicompost @5 t ha-1 and biofertilizers (Azospirillum and Azotobacter @10 kg ha-1) were replicated thrice for the said evaluation. Significantly maximum rhizome yield of 219.2 q ha-1 was obtained with the application of 100% RDF along with vermicompost and bio-fertilizers followed by the application of 75% RDF along with vermicompost and bio-fertilizers with rhizome yield of 206.6 q ha-1. The combination of bio-fertilizers and vermicompost along with RDF express their supremacy over other nutrient combinations. Application of 100% RDF with vermicompost and bio-fertilizers was at par with the application of 75% RDF along with vermicompost and bio-fertilizers. Hence 25% of inorganic fertilizers can be replaced with the application of organic fertilizers.
