Abstract:

Field experiments were conducted on the Medium and shallow Black Soils at KVK, Raisen, Madhya Pradesh during 2015-2017 to determine the effect of different mulches on vegetative growth and yield of Turmeric on drip irrigation. The research trials for the consecutive two years showed that plastic mulch resulted maximum plant height (116.140cm), No. of suckers/ plant (6.597), Length of leaves (63.663cm), Width of leaves (17.500cm), Days to maturity (266), No. of rhizome/ plant (19.35), Length of rhizome (9.303cm), Diameter of rhizome (3.367cm), Rhizome yield /plant (530.413g), Rhizome yield/ha (318.0Q ha-1). The highest yield was observed under the plastic mulch 28% increase in yield as compared to without mulch (248.2 Q ha-1).
