Need Turmeric Seeds


#1

Hello Friends
I am planning to go for turmeric in 4 acres land by end of march.
I want to plant PRATHIBHA variety, as I have heard that this is the best variety.
Can anyone tell me where to source these seeds?

If any other good variety then please let me know.

Thanks
Nikhil

Hi,

I was also trying for pratibha, Acc 48 ,79. I was told a price of Rs. 80 per kg. We need 800-1000 kgs per acre. So it’s costing huge. I stopped. People are just earning by selling the seeds.

Thanks and regards
Narendra

Hi,

I am from Visakhapatnam, Andhrapradesh. I have naturally grown turmeric for three years. The variety I have is PRAGATI(ACC 48) which gives better curcumin value(5.02%) than Prathibha. We need 250-300 kg of rizhomes per acer. If you need please contact at 9966646276.
