Effect of planting methods on turmeric production at farmer`s field

Bikramjit Singhm, R S Chhina

Abstract :

The study was conducted at three different locations in district Gurdaspur in Punjab to find out the best planting method for turmeric cultivation. Three different planting methods i.e. manual sowing on flat field at a spacing of 30 x 20 cm, manual sowing on ridges at 60 x 15 cm and sowing with semi–automatic potato planter at 60 x 15 cm were evaluated during the study. Significantly higher yield was observed in case of ridge sowing at spacing of 60 X 15 cm whether it is manually sown or sown with semi–automatic potato planter as compared to flat sowing at spacing of 30 X 20 cm. The highest yield (23.58 t/ha) was noted in case of manual sowing on ridges which was statistically at par with the crop sown with semi–automatic potato planter (23.50 t/ha.). Highest net returns (Rs 1,63,750/ ha) was obtained where the crop was sown with semi–automatic potato planter with the BC ratio of 3.30 followed by manual sowing on ridges (Rs. 1,61,750) with BC ratio of 3.19
