At the College of Horticulture and Forestry in Jhalawar, Rajasthan, India, twenty-five genotypes of turmeric from various sections of the country were tested for growth, yield, and quality. The correlation and path, as well as the direct and indirect impact of various characters to fresh rhizome yield / plant, are assessed using a process of adjustment and method analysis. Rhizome yield has a strong relationship with primary rhizome weight, followed by secondary and mother rhizome weight, plant height, number of leaves / plants, curing %, number of tillers / plant, and number of secondary and primary rhizome. The weight of the primary rhizome has the greatest impact on rhizome yield, followed by the weight of the secondary and mother rhizomes, the number of secondary and primary rhizomes, the number of leaves per plant, the number of tillers per plant, and the curcumin content. Studies have shown that selecting an extra primitive weight, followed by the weight of the secondary rhizome, and finally the weight of the mother, can be very effective in increasing rhizome production in turmeric, as it has a significant positive effect and a very observable combination of rhizome yield / plant.
