Abstract:
India is the largest producer of turmeric in the world, as out of the total turmeric grown in the world, India contributes to around 78-80 per cent of it. Although there are a few challenges that turmeric growers are confronted with nutritional aspects. The study is undertaken to estimate contribution of FYM and macro-nutrients in the turmeric rhizome and halum yield. The research data generated at STCRC project MPKV, Rahuri. Path analysis was employed to estimate contributions of FYM and macro-nutrients N, P and K.
FYM contributed 100 per cent in control plot for turmeric yield (Rhizome q/ha) and in treated plot it was 43 per cent followed by FN 26%. Similarly, FYM contributed 100% in control plot 42% in treated plots followed by FK 32% for turmeric yield (Halum q/ha). The major contribution of application of FYM was in turmeric (Rhizome and Halum) yield both in control and treated plots followed by Nitrogen application. Hence, an application of fertilizer nutrient as per yield target (STCRC approach) with at least 25 t/ha FYM is recommended for enhancing turmeric (Rhizome and Halum) yield, increasing fertilizer use efficiency of added nutrients and maintaining soil health.
