Major biochemical traits of kasthuri turmeric (Curcuma aromatica Salisb.). Influenced by organic manurial practices


Author(s): Bhende SS and Jessykutty PC

Abstract: The experiment was conducted with the main objective of studying the combined effect of organic manures and microbial inoculants on major biochemical traits in kasthuri turmeric (Curcuma aromatica Salisb.). The results revealed that application of treatment M2 d (T2) - Vermicompost (VC) 25.0 t ha-1 + mi recorded significantly superior values for rhizome biochemical traits like volatile oil (6.60 %), nonvolatile ether extract (6.73 %) and starch (22.58 %) followed by M3 d (T3) Neemcake (NC) 6.0 t ha-1 + mi and M4 d (T7) - FYM 20.0 t ha-1 + VC 6.25 t ha-1 + NC 1.5 t ha-1 + mi. The results convincingly proved the superiority of treatment M2 d (T2) - Vermicompost (VC) 25.0 t ha-1 + mi in case of volatile oil, nonvolatile ether extract and starch. Similarly, low crude fibre (2.13 %) was recorded in same treatment which is a very important quality attribute.
