Daughter rhizomes and mother rhizomes of a local cultivar of Curcuma longa were planted on 16 Apr., 16 May or 16 June 1983. For mother rhizomes, the greatest plant height (100 cm), number of tillers (2.62/plant) and number of leaves (13.12/plant) were obtained with planting on 16 May. For daughter rhizomes, plant height increased and numbers of tillers and leaves/plant decreased with later planting date. Highest fresh yield of rhizome was obtained with planting on 16 May (151.58 and 204.07 q/ha for daughter and mother rhizomes, respectively).
