Response of Turmeric to Planting Material and Mulching in the Hilly Region of Bangladesh

M.K. Alam, Z. Islam, M.A.Rouf, M.S. Alam and H.P. Mondal    

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at the Hill Agricultural Research Station, Khagrachari to find out a suitable planting material and mulch material for turmeric production in the hill slope of Chittagong Hill Tracts. Nine treatment combinations comprising 3 levels of planting material (mother rhizome, primary finger and secondary finger) and 3 levels of mulching (rice straw, sungrass and non-mulched) were compared. Mother rhizome showed better yield performance. Sungrass appeared the best mulching material for producing higher turmeric yield. Mother rhizome coupled with sungrass mulching gave significantly higher yields (387.6 g clump-1 and 29.4 t ha-1) of turmeric in hilly region of Bangladesh.
