A field experiment was performed to evaluate the symbiotic capability of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AM fungi) on vital medicinal and multipurpose crop turmeric. Turmeric treated with AM fungi +75% recommended rate of fertilizers (RRF) was recorded superior growth and yield performance over the control (100% RRF) and AM fungi + 50% RRF. Gradual improvement in plant agronomic properties changed into location with time duration. Significantly, a higher increase in rhizome yield was noticed in turmeric while treated with AM fungi with 75% RRF over the control. The present study has a look at implies suitability of AM fungus for reinforcing turmeric growth, yield, essential oil, curcumin contents, and improvement of soil fertility and health in addition to saving of considerable chemical fertilizers cost.
