Journal Title:International Journal of Agricultural Sciences

A study on different methods of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) planting was carried out at farmers field of district Hoshiarpur to evaluate the growth and yield of turmeric. The mean length of turmeric rhizomes for T1 (planting of turmeric manually at 30cm 20cm spacing), T2 (planting of turmeric manually at 45cm 15cm spacing) and T3 (planting of turmeric with semi-automatic potato planter at a spacing of 60cm 15cm) after uprooting was 7.85cm, 7.91cm and 8.20cm, respectively while the mean diameter of turmeric rhizomes for T1, T2 and T3 after uprooting was 3.05cm, 2.64cm and 3.45cm, respectively. The number of rhizomes per kg for T1, T2 and T3 were 34, 30 and 24, respectively. The yield of turmeric rhizome was highest (130.0 q/acre) in T3 which was 17.65 per cent and 8.33 per cent more as compared to T2 and T1, respectively because the rhizomes were grown on ridges and the overall size of rhizomes was bigger.
