Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Horticultural Research Station, Adilabad (Northern Telangana Zone) of Telangana state for two consecutive years 2016 and 2017 to find out the performance of Salem variety of turmeric with two planting materials (Split and full rhizome) and three population levels (1,48,148, 74,074 and 98,765 plants ha-1) on raised beds. The two years study revealed that full rhizomes used as planting material showed significantly higher mean plant height of 34.20, 58.47, 80.61 and 82.68 cm at 60, 90, 120 and 150 DAP respectively. Full rhizome treatment showed significantly higher number of mother rhizomes (3.86), primary fingers (12.54), secondary fingers plant-1 (15.98), clump weight plant-1 (1035 g), girth of mother rhizome (19.13 cm), weight of mother rhizome (86.18 g) and fresh rhizome yield (21.58 t ha-1) over split rhizome treatment. Plant population densities did not differ significantly for plant height and number of leaves plant-1 during all growth stages during both the years of study. Maximum number of mother rhizomes (3.97), primary fingers (13.05), secondary fingers (16.94), clump weight plant-1 (1140 g), girth of mother rhizome (21.60 cm) and weight of mother rhizome (87.65 g) were recorded in 74,074 plant population treatment. Maximum fresh rhizome yield (20.14 t ha-1) was recorded with plant population stand of 1,48,148 plants ha-1 which was on par with plant population stand of 98,765 and 74,074 plants ha-1.
