Abstract:
The research work was conducted to find out the optimum plant spacing for maximizing the yield of turmeric. Four plant spacing i.e., 45 x 10, 45 x 20, 45 x 30 and 60 x 30 cm2 were considered in the study. The highest average yield (17.87 t ha-1) was obtained from 45 x 10 cm2 plant spacing which was closely followed (16.77 t ha-1) by 45 x 20 cm2 plant spacing. While the lowest average yield (13.42 t ha-1) was recorded from 60 x 30 cm2 plant spacing in respective two years. So, in agronomic point of view, 45 x 10 cm2 plant spacing is suitable but economically 45 x 20 cm2 plant spacing is viable for turmeric production.
