Cultivar Kanti recovered tiighest plant helgtit and number of tillers, CLT-325 maximum leaf area and leaf area index at 180 days after planting. The maximum fresh rhizome yield was in Kanti (21.341 ha-1) followed by Rajapuri, CLT-325 and PTS-24. Significant variations were observed for curing percentage among different cultivars. Highest curing percentage was in Kanti followed by PTS-24, CLT-325, Alleppey and Swama. Kanti recorded highest cured yield 5.591 ha-1, which is on par with CLT-325 and PTS-24. With respect to curcumin content cultivar PTS-24 (7.23 %) was found superior followed by Kanti (7.13 %) and were on par with each other. Considering the better performance in terms of growth, yield and quality the cultivars Kanti, CLT-325, and PTS-24 are identified as promising suitable cultivars for rain fed condition under hill zone of Kamataka.
