Abstract: Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) a member of zingiberaceae family is one of the major medicinal plants cultivated in India. The rhizomes are of immense medicinal and culinary importance world over. It is an exhaustive crop and requires high soil fertility and applied nutrients for successful growth and yield. The present investigation on integrated nutrient management on turmeric involving organic, inorganic and bio-fertilizers was carried out at College of Horticulture, Mudigere, Karnataka, with Thirteen treatment combinations. Among the different combinations of inorganic and bio-fertilizers tried, application of 100 % RDF through inorganic sources along with seed treatment of rhizomes with Azospirillum and PSB @ 10g/kg and soil application of VAM @ 70 kg/ha has proven best to promote plant growth and yield of turmeric.
