Abstract: The field experiment involving fertigation (50, 75, 100 and 125% of recommended nitrogen and potash in the form of ammonium sulphate and sulphate of potash along with 100 % of RDF i.e., 150:125:250 kg/ha of N, P2O5 and K2O through soil application) as main plots and spacing (60 x 20, 60 x 30 and 60 x 40 cm) as sub plots in transplanted turmeric was conducted during kharif 2017-18 at the Department of Plantation, Spices, Medicinal and Aromatic Crops, Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi, University of Horticultural Sciences, Bagalkot, Karnataka. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications. Fertigation significantly influenced growth, yield and quality of transplanted turmeric. Fertigation with 125 per cent N and K2O recorded highest plant height (72.67 cm), number of tillers per plant (7.60), number of leaves per plant (20.58), length of recently mature leaf (39.38 cm), area of recently matured leaf (485.83 cm2) and total chlorophyll content (16.14 mg/g) at 180 DAT and resulted in the highest yield (8.46 ton/ha), girth of mother rhizome (2.86 cm), primary rhizome (1.91 cm), curing percentage (26.89), curcumin (3.22 %) and oleoresin (9.96 %) content. Wider spacing of 60 x 40 cm resulted in the highest plant height (68.90 cm), number of tillers per plant (7.47) and number of leaves (18.30) at 180 DAT and resulted in the highest fresh plant yield (492g) and girth of mother rhizome (2.72 cm). However, turmeric transplanted at 60 x 20 cm recorded longest length of recently matured leaf (38.51 cm) and also produced the highest fresh estimated yield (7.25 ton/ha). The combination of transplanting turmeric at 60 x 20 cm and fertigation with 125 per cent N and K2O found to be superior as it produced the highest estimated fresh rhizome yield (10.29 t/ha) resulting in the highest net return (Rs. 106275/ha) with 1.92 B: C ratio.
