Abstract:

Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) is an herbaceous perennial plant belong form the family zingiberaceae. In the present investigation, 27 genotypes from different sources of the country were taken into consideration for genetic variability analysis and evaluation of different characters as specified by the DUS characters evaluated by Indian Institute of Spices Research. Randomized Block Design was adopted for evaluating the genotypes about the performances in this region. The characterization was done in genotypes and grouped according to the DUS groups of all the genotypes. Here, 7 genotypes of turmeric were found to be the best among the 27 genotypes investigated in this terai region of West Bengal compared to local check variety TCP 2 and national check variety Prativa. So 7 genotypes were recognized and advised to consider for growing which will give better result in this region of West Bengal.


Keywords: Genetic variability, Heritability, Plant height, Rhizome length, DUS characters
