Land and soil selection of Turmeric ‘Curcuma longa’.

Sandy loam and silty loam soils are suitable for turmeric cultivation. The soil should be prepared by plowing 4-5 deep and using a ladder. Care should be taken to ensure that the soil is moist. Furadan 5g should be applied at the rate of 25-30 kg per hectare before final cultivation. There must be good irrigation and drainage system.

Sowing seeds of Turmeric ‘Curcuma longa’

Mid-March month is the best time to plant tubers.

Generally:

1-2 baskets of tubers weighing 15-20 grams should be planted. 50 cm 25 cm apart in rows. 5-7 cm apart. The tubers should be planted deep. 2500 kg of tubers are required per hectare. After the tubers are planted, they should be dug up.

Caste Introduction:

There are two developed varieties in Bangladesh called Dimla and Sinduri. The Dimla variety gives 3 times more yield than the local variety. It is available in the international market.

Fertilizer application and management:

The amount of fertilizer depends on the fertility of the land. Generally, the amount of fertilizer per hectare is: dung 4-6 tons, urea 200-240 kg, TSP 170-190 kg, MOP 160-180 kg, gypsum 105-120 kg and zinc sulfate 2-3 kg. At the time of land preparation, all cow dung, TSP, gypsum, zinc sulphate and 80 kg of MOP fertilizer should be mixed with the soil.

After 50-60 days of planting tubers, 100-120 kg of urea should be lightly plowed and applied again. After 50-60 days of the 1st installment, the second installment – and another 50-60 days after the third installment – should be applied. 50-60 kg of Urea and 40-45 kg of MOP fertilizer should be applied per hectare as top-fertilizer in 2nd and 3rd installments. Fertilizer of the 2nd and 3rd installments should be applied between the rows and then mixed with the soil after cutting with a hoe and a little soil should be added to the well.

Time of planting:

Turmeric tubers are generally planted from mid-April to mid-May (beginning to end of Baisakh). For planting, select plump, shiny and disease-free tubers.

Seed rate and seed treatment:

2.0-2.5 tonnes of tubers (rhizomes) are required per hectare. Good yield is obtained from tubers weighing about 50 grams. Tubers should be cleaned to protect against various seed borne diseases. 4-6 hours before planting, mix Bavistin/Scor 2 grams per liter of water and immerse the tubers for 30-40 minutes, then remove the tubers from the water and dry them in the shade and plant them in the original soil.

Planting method and distance:

60 cm in land. Seed tubers should be planted 5-7 cm deep in 25 cm rows and covered with soil. A 60 cm wide drain should be kept between the two rows for irrigation and drainage. Later, the soil should be lifted from the drain between the two rows and placed at the base of the tree.

But care should be taken so that water does not accumulate on the ground. Drainage of accumulated water should be arranged. Mulching (dry leaves or straw) should be provided to conserve soil moisture and regulate temperature. This will reduce the amount of weeds.

Pests and Insects:

Disease and spider attack is much less than conventional varieties. This variety is resistant to leaf blight and rhizome rot.

When turmeric leaves are infected with leafblotch disease, the upper part of the leaf usually dries up, as a result, the plant cannot produce food, and the yield is reduced. As soon as this disease appears, fungicides such as Autostin/Bavistin 2 grams or Folicur 1 ml per liter of water should be mixed and sprayed 2-3 times on the entire leaves after 10-12 days.

When yellow tuber attack occurs, the lower leaves of the plant turn yellow and the whole plant dries up and dies. Affected plants come up easily when pulled by hand. Healthy tubers should be used as seeds to avoid tuber rot. Seed treatment is definitely an important issue. As soon as this disease appears in the field, fungicides such as Autostin/Bavistin 2 grams or Folicur 1 ml per liter of water should be mixed and sprayed 2-3 times on the entire leaves after 10-12 days.

Crop collection:

Harvesting is usually done within 280-305 days after sowing when the upper part of the plant is completely dry. February is the perfect time for harvesting. Turmeric tubers should be collected by loosening the soil by digging with a spade, but care should be taken not to damage the tubers. The roots of the tubers should be cut and cleaned well and kept in a shaded place. After cleaning, the turmeric root and stem should be kept in a separate shaded place. This is called curing. Curing should be done after processing.

Yield:

This variety can yield 30-33 tonnes per hectare if properly cared for.

Conservation:

Fresh and disease-free rhizomes must be selected to preserve turmeric. Digging holes according to the size of the rhizome and keeping the turmeric tubers maintains proper humidity and freshness. Turmeric tubers should be spread over it with sand by making trenches on the straw floor. Then cover the tuber well with sand. There must be adequate ventilation.

You can cultivate Binahlud-1, the yield per plant is 1 kg.

Leaf blight disease:

Brown burnt spots on leaves. If there is no disease in the turmeric plant, turmeric should be harvested in February. But he had to remove the turmeric before long if it was Bamo. Otherwise the plant dies, turmeric is not available. Farmers usually do not take any measures to cure the disease. Not only in the hilly areas of Joom Turmeric, but also in the plains, there are now reports of disease attack on Turmeric in the alternating monsoons. Turmeric plants are commonly attacked by three diseases: leaf blight, leaf spot and tuber rot. The first two diseases are now being seen in yellow plants.

The symptoms and remedies of these two diseases are discussed.

Yellow leaf blight disease:

Leaf blight disease At first numerous small round brown spots are seen on both sides of the leaves of yellow plants affected by this disease. The spots run parallel to the leaf veins. Gradually the spots grow larger and several spots coalesce to scorch the leaves. Severely affected leaves eventually drop off. If the affected dry leaves are lying on the ground, with the help of wind, the germs of this disease infect other dry plants and scorch the leaves of most of the plants in the field. This disease is caused by the fungus Taphrina maculans.

If you want to control this disease, you have to go to the field regularly and see the trees. If the diseased leaves are removed and burned at the beginning of the attack, the disease cannot progress further.

Even then, if the disease occurs, mix 10 milliliters (2 teaspoons) of Folicur or 20 grams (4 teaspoons) of Diathen M45 fungicide per 10 liters of water (1 spray machine water) and spray all the plants in the field well on both sides of the leaves. This disease is cured by spraying three to four times in 15 days.

To avoid this disease in the future, tubers or tubers cannot be kept as seeds from any diseased field. Even before planting the tubers, they should be treated with Bavistin or Diathen M45. It is better not to cultivate turmeric in the same land for two to three consecutive years.

Yellow leaf spot disease:

Leaf spot disease Continuous high humidity weather favors this disease. Frequent rain and heat increase the disease. This disease is more common in August-September in this country. But this disease continues till October-November. The germs of the disease can live up to a year in the dry leaves of infected plants. From there, the disease spreads through air, water etc.

This disease is caused by the fungus called Colletotrichum capsici.

In the attack of this disease, oval round spots appear on the leaves. There are brown to dark brown rings around the spots and gray color in the center of the spots. A yellow ring is formed around the entire spot. Gradually the spots start to enlarge and spots are formed over a large part of the leaf. In severe infestations, the entire leaf area becomes scorched and the affected leaves droop and eventually dry up.

Management Diseased and dry leaves should be collected from the trees and burnt.

As soon as the disease is seen, after removing the affected leaves, the rest of the plants in the field should be sprayed with fungicides such as Candozym (eg Bavistin) or Mancozeb (eg Diathen M45). Mix 20 grams (4 teaspoons) of fungicide in every 10 liters of water (1 spray machine water) and spray all the plants in the field. This disease is cured by spraying three to four times in 15 days.

The field should be kept clean at all times. The dry leaves of the turmeric plant should be cleaned.

To avoid this disease in the future, tubers or tubers cannot be kept as seeds from any diseased field. Even before planting the tubers, they should be treated with Bavistin or Diathen M45. Yellow seeds from diseased plants should not be kept.

Causes and remedies for yellow leaves of Turmeric ‘Curcuma longa’ plants:

People like to plant Turmeric plant on the balcony or roof of the house, but often we see that the leaves of our favorite trees are turning yellow, the leaves are falling, the whole tree is dying. Even after so much care, it is seen that the leaves of the tree turn yellow. There is not just one reason why leaves turn yellow. The leaves of each tree turn yellow for one reason or another. If we don’t understand why a plant is turning yellow, we can’t properly care for it.

Here are a few reasons from research experience:

If water is less/more:

If the plant is watered more or less than required, there is a possibility that the leaves of the plant will turn yellow. If the plant is watered less, the leaves will turn yellow and dry.

Not watering plants regularly:

Again, if you give excessive water to the tree, you can understand the feeling of dampness by rubbing the leaves a little. So you need to be careful when watering the plants so that the amount of water in the plants is not too low or too high. This may cause the tree to die. Always test the soil with your fingers to see if the soil is dry or wet.

If fertilizer is less/more:

All farmers use more or less chemical fertilizers but many do not know which fertilizer should be used in what quantity and when. So excessive use of these chemical fertilizers will cause the leaves to turn yellow and burn. In this case, a lot of water will be used so that the chemical fertilizers are washed away in the water. Then it will be possible to save the tree.

If the fertilizer is less, the leaves will turn yellow and fall off. For this, NPK fertilizers should be used as required during planting.

When the amount of oxygen in the soil decreases:

Even if there is a lack of oxygen in the soil, the leaves of the plant may turn yellow. Then 2/3 of the nails should be put on the soil of the plant tub on both sides. Since nails are made of iron, iron needs oxygen in the air to rust. Rust is mainly ferric oxide, so when this rust forms it can provide essential oxygen to the soil. Fertilizer should be applied if land.

Lack of potassium:

Many times it is seen that the upper leaves of the plant are green but the lower leaves turn yellow. Or the leaves are yellow around the edges but green in the middle.

If this is the case, it should be understood that there is a lack of potassium in the plant. In this condition, the banana peel should be dried in the sun and blended and given at the base of the tree. Or use a pinch of potassium fertilizer in the soil of the plant. If the land is to give potassium fertilizer.

Avoid composting when transplanting new seedlings into tubs:

The leaves of the plants turn yellow even if vermicompost or cow dung is not added to the soil prepared at the time of transplanting. And after every 2 to 3 months these plants should be fertilized with compost. In this the plant will get regular food as needed.

If attacked by insects:

Many times the leaves turn yellow when attacked by insects. For this, you have to take measures to kill insects as necessary. Pesticides should be sprayed conveniently.

Chlorophyll deficiency:

The leaves may turn yellow after a thorough care. Then it should be understood that there is a lack of magnesium in the leaves of the tree, as a result of which there is a deficiency of chlorophyll. As a result, the leaves of the plant appear yellowish (the whole becomes pale). If there is such a problem, the tree cannot produce enough food, as a result, there is a delay in the flowering and fruiting of the plant.

So in this condition Epsom salt (which is also known as mag salt in the market) should be used on the tree. Epsom salt 40 to 50 taka per kg which should be mixed with 1 to 2 grams in 1 liter of water and sprayed on the leaves after 15 to 20 days.

When the season changes:

Many times when the season changes like from hot to cold or from cold to hot or even during monsoons the leaves of the trees turn yellow. These are normal occurrences. During these periods the leaves may turn yellow which is a natural phenomenon. But if the leaves turn yellow for a long time or fall off, it is necessary to take some action.
