Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at college farm of Horticultural College and Research Institute, Venkataramannagudem, Andhra Pradesh during 2014-15 to determine the effect of different types of planting material and fertilizer levels on quantitative parameters i.e., number and size of mother, primary, secondary rhizomes, fresh and dry weight per clump and yield of turmeric. A total of six types of planting material raised in protrays viz., single node cuttings, double node cuttings, mother rhizome pieces, primary, secondary and mother rhizomes were evaluated with five fertilizer doses in factorial randomized block design. The results on quantitative parameters indicated that these variables were in decreasing order with reduced seed size and fertilizer dose. Mother rhizomes as planting material with the application of 360: 120: 160 kg NPK ha-1 recorded the maximum number of mother rhizomes (2.43), number of secondary rhizomes (16.07), size of secondary rhizomes (11.76 cm3), fresh weight of rhizomes clump-1 (238.12 g), dry weight of rhizomes clump-1 (79.58 g) and rhizome yield ha-1 (30.94 t ha-1) and the least was observed in single node cuttings along with 120: 40: 100 kg NPK ha-1.


Keywords: Planting material, Fertilizer levels, Turmeric and size of the rhizome.
