Abstract:

Forty turmeric genotypes collected from different parts of the country including two recommended varieties as checks viz. Palam Lalima and Palam Pitambar were planted at the Experimental Farm of the Department of Vegetable Science, Dr. YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan (HP) during Kharif season of 2011 and evaluated for different yield and yield contributing traits. The observations were recorded on emergence, number of tillers and leaves per plant, leaf length and breadth, plant girth and height, length, girth, core diameter and weight of mother, primary and secondary rhizomes, number of primary and secondary rhizomes per plant, yield per plant, per plot and per hectare, incidence of rhizome rot, dry matter and curcumin content. The correlation studies indicated that yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated with emergence, number of tillers and leaves per plant, leaf length, plant girth and height, length, core diameter and weight of mother, primary and secondary rhizomes, while significant negative correlations were observed with incidence of rhizome rot and curcumin content. Among all the traits studied, weight of primary rhizome had maximum positive direct effect on yield followed by length of primary rhizome, core diameter of mother rhizome, length and weight of secondary rhizome, emergence, plant girth and height.
