Abstract:

Bamboo is a fast growing woody grass and give regular income after three years of growth and thus harvesting of mature culms open the space for light and other atmospheric micro climate factors, suitable for shade loving crop like Haldi and zinger incurrent study two varieties of turmeric (Curcuma longa) viz., Roma and Ranga was cultivated as cover crop at  50 x 50cm (S-1) 50 x 30cm (S-2) and 40 x 30cm (S-3) spacing under Bamboo (Dendrocalamus strictus) plantation (8 x 6m) and in open field i.e. without tree. Where the yield of fresh turmeric was received under Bamboo plantation (161.46 q ha-1) which was 28.5% less than open field crop. The yield of Ranga was 206.71q ha-1 than Roma (180.55 q ha-1). In case of spacing highest yield was received 209.44 q ha-1 and lowest at S2 (177.29 q ha-1). The interaction of cropping system x variety showed highest yield in open field crop for Ranga (245.67 q ha-1) and than Roma (205.92 q ha-1) and under Bamboo plantation it dropped to 167.75 q ha-1 for Ranga and 155.18 q ha-1 for Roma.  In case of interaction of cropping system x spacing, the highest yield was received in open field crop 246.31 q ha-1 at followed by 215.67 and 215.40 q ha-1 at S3 and S2 respectively with insignificant variations. Insignificant  interaction of variety x spacing, gave highest yield 221.00 q ha-1  for at S1 followed by 206.73 q ha-1 at S3 raged afterward at 197.88 to 162.17 q ha-1. In case interaction of cropping system x variety x spacing, was found statistically non-significant where the yield was consistently higher for Ranga at all spacing in open field crop of Turmeric i.e. 241.2 to 252.8 q ha-1, whole under Bamboo plantation the yield was ranged 143.6 to 189.2 q ha-1. Performance of variety Roma was recorded less than Ranga variety of Turmeric either in cropping system of at crop spacing. The population of bamboo was 44.92 culm clump-1 and harvesting of matured Bamboo produced 7.30, 3.4 and 1.7 kg per culm of biomass culm branches and leaves respectively.
