Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Horticultural College and Research Institute, Periyakulam, Tamil Nadu during 2019-20 to study the effect of different mulches on growth and yield of Black turmeric under drip irrigation condition. In this trial, different organic mulches viz., paddy straw, dry grass, coir pith along with plastic mulch were used as mulching material. A treatment without mulching was also treated as control. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with four replications. The results indicated that the plants mulched with dry grass recorded maximum average plant height (58.40 cm) and number of leaves (16.00) as compared to other mulches. In case of yield of turmeric also, the dry grass mulch gave maximum fresh rhizome yield (22.03 t ha-1) followed by mulching with paddy straw (19.41 t ha-1).
