Abstract:

Mango ginger (Curcuma amada Roxb.) is popular in Southern and Eastern India mainly due to its typical pleasant flavor. It is a spice cum medicinal plant that has been reported to possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antitumor properties. The rhizomes find an extensive application in the preparation pickles because of its exotic mango aroma. A field experiment was conducted at College of Horticulture, Mudigere to standardize the nutrition levels and seed rhizome weight for getting higher yields. The treatments consisted of two factors viz., rhizome weight (W1-20, W2-40, W3-60g) and nutrition levels (N1-Control, N2-60:50:100 kg NPK/ha, N3-90:75:150 kg NPK/ha, N4-120:100:200 kg NPK/ha, N5-150:125:250 kg NPK/ha, N6-180:150:300 kg NPK/ha). Among 18 treatment combinations, W3N6 (rhizomes weighing 60g with 180:150:300 kg NPK /ha) recorded maximum yield per hectare, essential oil content and it was observed that maximum B:C ratio was recorded in the treatment combination W1N6 (2.11) followed by W3N6 (2.05).
