Effects of seed rhizome size on growth and yield of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.)



Effects of seed rhizome size on growth and yield of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.)



Plant Production Science 8(1): 86-94



Turmeric (Curcuma longa L) plant species produces different sizes of daughter rhizomes (R) and mother rhizomes (MR), which are the only propagules (seed) for its cultivation. Here, we evaluated the effects of seed rhizome size on growth and yield of turmeric. Daughter rhizomes of 5-50 g (R-5 g-R-50 g) and mother rhizomes of 48-52 g (MR) were tested. The heavier the R up to 40 g, the better the plant growth, and the plants from the R-30 g, R-40 g, R-50 g and MR grew similarly well.
