Abstract:
Front line demonstration was conducted in 10 farmer fields at Settyvaripalli and T. Kothapalli villages of Mydukur Division of YSR Kadapa district during 2018-2021. Cultivation of Turmeric crop under raised bed system under drip irrigation and seed treatment with Mancozeb @ 0.3% for 40 min followed by seed treated with Trichoderma viride @ 0.5% for 30 min and basal application of liquid biofertilizers Azospirillum and Phosphorus solubilizing bacteria @ 1.25 lit per hectare each dissolved 20 lit water and mixed with 200 kg FYM and application of Trichoderma viride enriched FYM at 30 days after sowing is consider as T1 and farmer practices T2 (cultivation of Turmeric with RDF and foliar application of pesticide only). The practices of Integrated Crop Management in turmeric increases yield attributing characters viz., plant height, No. of tillers/ plant, No. of leaves/ plant and leaf length and breadth and Rhizome characters viz., No of rhizomes per clump (mother rhizomes, primary rhizomes and secondary rhizomes) and weight of rhizomes per clump (mother rhizomes, primary rhizomes and secondary rhizomes) were superior in ICM practice compare to farmers practice. The rhizome rot disease incidence 1.97 and 9.65%, leaf spot disease incidence was 29.33% and 32.4% and rhizome fly infestation was 0%, 0.24% in ICM practice (T1) and farmers practice (T2) respectively. Recorded 39.6 and 36.8 t/ha yield where as B:C ratio was 3.32:1 and 3.06:1 in ICM practice and farmers practice respectively.
