Abstract:
Turmeric is native to Asia and India. India has dominated in turmeric production at world level. Five On-farm trails per year were conducted with three varieties of turmeric during kharif season from 2012-13 to 2013-14 in 05 selected farmers field at different blocks of Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh. The experimentation was carried with variety Narendra Haldi-1, Narendra Haldi 2, Narendra Haldi-3 and local variety of farmers (control) and found that Narendra Haldi-1 was performed best in terms of yield followed by Narendra Haldi-3 and Narendra Haldi-2 in Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh. The cost of cultivation and net return of all varieties are calculated and it was found that Narendra Haldi varieties are gave better net return in comparison to local variety. An average net profit of Rs. 2, 35680 was recorded under recommended practice while it was Rs. 1,37,400/- under farmers’ practice. Benefit/ Cost ratio range 3.52 under demonstration while it was found 2.64 under control plots The sowing method/ distance, recommended dose of fertilizer, IPM technique also influence the yield production. The study of On-farm trails (OFT) of this technology, it could be shown that famers could get optimum yields, good returns with less production costs from turmeric cultivation.
