Author(s): Ranvijay Pratap Singh, Vijay Agrawal and Ajay Kumar Verma
Abstract: An investigation was made to determine the "Effect of bio-fertilizers and organic manures on quality parameter of turmeric during Kharif and Rabi season of 2012-2013. Among the treatment combinations, T7 O3 B1 (VC 5t/ha + Azospirillum 5kg/ha) recorded maximum 4.94% essential oil and was significantly lowest 2.11% in treatment combination T1 (O0 B0 No organic manure + No bio-fertilizer i.e. control). With regards to organic manures, the treatment O3 (Vermicompost 5t/ha) resulted significantly maximum essential oil 4.51% and with least (2.87%) under the treatment O1 (No organic manures) whereas, with regard to bio-fertilizers, Treatment B1 (Azospirillum 5 kg/ha) exhibited maximum 3.98% essential oil in leaves, while the treatment B0 (No bio-fertilizer) was recorded the minimum 3.25% essential oil in leaves.
