Abstract: The present investigation was carried out at field trail of Main Experimental Station, Vegetable Science N.D.U.A. & T., Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.) during 2011-12 to study the performance of turmeric cultivars. Cultivar NDH-7 and NDH-8 was found superior in growth characteristics such as plant height, yield of rhizome/plant. NDH-8 found tallest (111.2 cm) while, yield of rhizome per plant was recorded in NDH-7 (303.00 g). The results showed that moisture, mineral, curcumin and essential oil ranged from 9.4 to 12.2 per cent, 3.39 to 5.30 per cent, 3.7 to 5.9 per cent and 3.32 to 8.19 per cent, respectively. NDH-7, NDH-8 and Prahba were found superior among all cultivars and variety.
